Abraham, the Jew

Abraham was a famous magician and alchemist who lived around 1400. There are very few facts known about this German Jew, and what we do know has been gathered from a mysterious manuscript now held in the Archives of the Bibliotheque de l'Arsenal in Paris. Eems that Abraham was born in the year 1362, and his father was believed to have been a magician or a seer too. Abraham sought further knowledge through travel, and roamed through Austral, Hungary and Greece with his companion Samuel.

He stayed two years in Constantinople before travelling on to Arabia and Egypt. Here, he met the famous philosopher Melin who shared priceless secrets and entrusted him with special documents. From here, Abraham returned to Europe and settled down to research alchemy in Germany. Here he married his cousin and together they had five children. By this time he was famous, and was often summoned to perform magic before the rich and influential (including King Henry VI and Pope John XXII).

The end of Abraham's career remains something of a mystery, and he is believed to have dies around 1460.
