Rémi Franckowiak contribue à l'ouvrage "Greek Alchemy from Late Antiquity to Early Modernity" paru en 2018 et dirigé par E. Nicolaïdis. Il y publie : "Athanasius Rhetor and the Greek Chemistry in the 17th century Ottoman Empire".

This volume engages in the effort to shed light on Greek alchemy from the 1st century CE to the 18th century, discussing and presenting relative sources, as well as the reception, transformation and use of this 'art'. It also examines newly discovered manuscripts and offers a commented translation of Stephanos of Alexandria’s prayers. Furthermore, it addresses the problems of laboratory replication and chemical explanation of early alchemical processes, and presents educational activities that use historical texts for the reconstruction of apparatuses in the school laboratory.  Plus d'infos
