Example text

Godwin introduced the Rosicrucian novel by adapting the legends of the philoso­ pher’s stone and the elixir of life to the Gothic formula. 45 The original title of St Leon had been the Opus Magnum, which had ac­ knowledged the central importance of the philosopher’s stone and elixir to the plot. But subsequently dissatisfied with this, Godwin changed it to the less esoteric title of Natural Magic and then to The Adept before finally deciding on St Leon. Godwin may have taken this surname from the Cabala with which the Rosicrucians had been associated, since the name of the author of one of the most influential Cabalistic texts was Mo­ ses de Leon.
