Genre


Nicolas Flamel was a successful French scrivener and manuscript-seller who developed a posthumous reputation as an alchemist due to his reputed work on the philosopher's stone. Due to the many legends that accrued to his name, he has sometimes been supposed to be the creation of 17th-century editors; however, more recently official documents relating to his life have been found, including his marriage contract with Perenelle, his deeds of gift, and his will. Nevertheless, the works published under his name are highly disputed, and are more often described as "attributed to" rather than "written by" him.

“You must learn to question everything. To wait before moving, to look before stepping, and to observe everything ”
Nicolas Flamel

“And before you say this is all far-fetched, just think how far the human race has come in the past ten years. If someone had told your parents, for example, that they would be able to carry their entire music library in their pocket, would they have believed it? Now we have phones that have more computing power than was used to send some of the first rockets into space. We have electron microscopes that can see individual atoms. We routinely cure diseases that only fifty years ago was fatal. and the rate of change is increasing. Today we are able to do what your parents would of dismissed as impossible and your grandparents nothing short of magical.”
Nicolas Flamel
