The Healer of Wounds: Interpreting Human Existence in the Lİght of Alchemy and Ascension

Stephen HIRTENSTEIN

“A prophetic figure named allusively as the Healer of Wounds is mentioned by Ibn 'Arabi in two early chapters of his Futuhat al-Makkiyya. In this talk we will explore the identity and character of this mysterious figure through a close reading of the text, and his special connection to alchemy and ascension.”
