Robert Fludd
[Robert Fludd]
January 17, 1574 - September 8, 1637
A prominent Paracelsian physician, astrologer, mathematician, cosmologist and Qabalist, Fludd was the first person to discuss the circulation of the blood and also produced an influential diagram used in the study of perception, consciousness and psychology in his Utriusque cosmi maioris scilicet et minoris (1619).
English physicist, astrologer, and mystic, Robert Fludd was not a member of the Rosicrucians—if such a society actually existed at the time—although he defended their thoughts in his Apologia Compendiaria (1616).
Both anti-masons, and masonic authors such as Arthur Edward Waite and Manly P Hall, have claimed without proof that Doctor Fludd was either a freemason, or at least a key link in rosicrucianism's alleged influence on Freemasonry.
