Adrian von Mynsicht [1] (1603–1638) was a German alchemist. He is best known for the allegorical work Aureum Saeculum Redivivum (The Golden Age Restored),[2] published under the pseudonym Henricus Madathanus, and usually dated to 1621/2. It was soon reprinted in collections, the Musaeum Hermeticum[3] and the Dyas Chymica Tripartita, both 1625 (Frankfurt, same publisher).

He wrote also the Thesaurus et Armamentarium Medico-Chymicum (1631), a medical work.[3]

  2. ^ The Golden Age Restored [1](described here).
  3. ^ A treasury of physick with the most secret way of preparing remedies against all diseases was the subtitle of the English translation [2]; Mynsicht was said in the latter part of a short life to have been a physician.
