But actually, what is the Church’s stance on alchemy and alchemists? Albertus Magnus was one of the most famous alchemists ever, and he’s a Saint and a Doctor of the Church. And what is alchemy, anyway? The effort to transform personal “lead” into “gold”?
I think it would be viewed as basic greed, after all, its kind of a get rich quick idea. I could see no other benefit from turning lead into gold.
