"Prophecy, Alchemy and the End of Time: John of Rupecissa in the Late Middle Ages" by Leah DeVun.

Columbia UP 2009.

ISBN 9780231145381

256 pages.

"Religious figures who preached the end-times were hardly rare in the late Middle Ages, but Rupecissa's teachings were unique. He claimed that knowledge of the world, and alchemy in particular, could act as a defence against the plagues and wars of the last days."
