The Death of Merlin

Arthurian Myth and Alchemy

Walter Johannes Stein

240 pp.  

Floris Books




The story of King Arthur and the Grail still holds a remarkable fascination for many people. In this classic work, Walter Johannes Stein traces its origins in early Christianity and classical and Nordic mythology, and follows its development in medieval and modern times. In particular, Stein explores the parallels between the quest for the Grail and the medieval alchemists search for the Philosopher’s Stone.

The Death of Merlin collects Stein’s essays and lectures from the 1920s and 1930s. The first section contains Stein’s memoirs, which provide context for his research within the culture of the era.
