Abstract

The work gives a survey of the ample correspondence, which the Westfalian parson, medical doctor and alchemist Bährens exchanged with his spiritual relative Carl Arnold Kortum, a medical doctor, too, who is better known from the history of alchemy. The work exclusively deals with alchemical and socialpolitical problems as they were discussed, at the end of the 18th century, by two country-doctors beeing fond of alchemy, but otherwise very intellectual men. Due to the uninterrupted tradition of the correspondence exchanged through many years, the life and activity of an otherwise unknown doctor of that epoch has been laid open.
