Georg von Welling AKA Gregorius Anglus Sallwigt

Bavaria 1652 – 1727

Comments: Alchemist ; Alchemy; Rosicrucian; Qabalist; Freemason quoted by Manly P. Hall in Secret Teachings of All Ages, attributed to Georg von Welling - "The original word חירם, CHiram, is a radical word consisting of three consonants ח ר and ם i. e. Cheth, Resh and Mem. (1) ח, Cheth, signifies Chamah, the Sun's light, i. e. the Universal, invisible, cold fire of Nature attracted by the Sun, manifested into light and sent down to us and to every planetary body belonging to the solar system. (2) ר, Resh, signifies ריח Ruach, i. e. Spirit, air, wind, as being the Vehicle which conveys and collects the light into numberless Foci, wherein the solar rays of light are agitated by a circular motion and manifested in Heat and burning Fire. (3) ם, or מ Mem, signifies majim, water, humidity, but rather the mother of water, i. e. Radical Humidity or a particular kind of condensed air. These three constitute the Universal Agent or fire of Nature in one word, חירם, CHiram, not Hiram." which is a great use of a Qabalist using the symbolism of Alchemy to explain the essential inner secrets of Freemason;
