Abstract:
Bahá'u'lláh and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá referred to the 'hidden craft' of alchemy as part of divine philosophy, but which would only be used wisely and properly appreciated after the attainment of human maturity; some Bábí and Bahá'í references to alchemy.
Notes:
Alchemy is more than about transmutation; as a "divine philosophy," its goal is to reproduce and mirror the process of creation itself in order to embody spirit in matter.
