Philalethes, Eugenius (1622–1666)
Pseudonym of alchemist Thomas Vaughan, brother of
Henry Vaughan, the ‘‘Silurist’’ poet. Eugenius Philalethes has
often been confused with Eirenaeus Philalethes (or Philaletha),
another alchemist. The scholar Arthur E. Waite made
this error in his book The Real History of the Rosicrucians (1887).
He corrected it the following year, both in his new edition of
the Lives of Alchemystical Philosophers (1888) and his edition of
The Magical Writings of Thomas Vaughan (1888).
