Ingrid Lotze, Wolfram von Eschenbach’s Parzival: The Alchemical Inspiration
Abstract - The earliest translations of alchemical treatises into Latin appeared in the 12th century. Scholarly analyses about literary works written during the High Middle Ages are limited to general observations and the evaluation of sources from non-specific times. This paper argues that Wolfram von Eschenbach not only read Latin but that he integrated alchemical theories and spirituality from two 12th-century treatises in his Parzival. The treatises in question are De compositione alchemiae and the Tabula Smaragdina.
