Adrian von Mynsicht

Adrian von Mynsicht [1](1603-1638) was a German alchemist. He is best known for the allegorical work Aureum Saeculum Redivivum[2], published under the pseudonym Henricus Madathanus, and usually dated to 1621/2. It was soon reprinted in collections, the Musaeum Hermeticum[3] and the Dyas Chymica Tripartita, both 1625 (Frankfurt, same publisher).

He wrote also the Thesaurus et Armamentarium Medico-Chymicum (1631), a medical work.[3]
