Elias Ashmole: London's Forgotten Adept

Monday 2 June
Elias Ashmole: London's Forgotten Adept
Lecture - Ruth Clydesdale

Elias Ashmole (1617-1692) is famed for founding the first public museum, the Ashmolean, a fact that has overshadowed his importance in the history of occultism. He was the astrological advisor to Charles II, an early freemason, an alchemical secret-holder. He collected rare esoteric texts and even saved a fellow astrologer from the gallows.

Tonight we celebrate Ashmole’s secret occult life.

Ruth Clydesdale is a writer and astrologer with interest in the history of astrology and its links to magic, alchemy and art.
