Historians of science are hard at work clarifying the critical contribution made by alchemy to the Scientific Revolution. In that light, Dr. Cavalli wrote Embodying Osiris: Secrets of Alchemical Transformationin which he describes the importance of ancient Egyptian cosmology and mythology to the evolution of alchemical thought.

In his most recent paper, “The Alchemical Osiris, Sublime Symbol of Eternal Regeneration,” he offers an in-depth analysis of an auspicious 3,000 year-old Egyptian tomb painting that depicts early evidence of the alchemical marriage. Other new findings include a re-dating of alchemy’s origin, the alchemical significance of mummification, Egyptian roots of the sulfur-mercury principle and the revolutionary importance of radium to contemporary alchemical thought.

This paper will be presented at the Jung/Lacan conference sponsored by IAAP and Spring Journal Books that will be held at St. John’s College Cambridge University, September 12 – 14, 2014.
