    Transmission and Transmutation: George Ripley and the Place of English Alchemy in Early Modern Europe.Jennifer M. Rampling - 2012 - Early Science and Medicine 17 (5):477-499.
    Continental authors and editors often sought to ground alchemical writing within a long-established, coherent and pan-European tradition, appealing to the authority of adepts from different times and places. Greek, Latin and Islamic alchemists met both in person and between the covers of books, in actual, fictional or coincidental encounters: a trope utilised in Michael Maier’s Symbola aureae mensae duodecim nationum.
