misc[edit]

He is mentioned in Borges' Death and the Compass

Gwynedd connection[edit]

Is this information of any importance? Is it even true? (There is no citation, surely there should be.) --Treharne (talk) 11:58, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Influential work on perception[edit]

Fludd's diagram investigating perception proves to be insightful and radically approaches the philosophical topic of perception. However, it has not reached consensus on the perception page and was deleted. It is a great pity. Alan347 (talk) 09:45, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Better citations needed for popular culture[edit]

In popular culture

In the book The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, Fludd has been alleged to be the sixteenth Grand Master of the Prieuré de Sion.[citation needed]

The obvious problem here is that the book is a fiction, so it isn't clear why it should be here. If we do want to include fictionalised mentions, at least they must
1) say they are fictional
2) be properly sourced.

Robert Fludd is an important secondary character in Mary Gentle's novel A Sundial in a Grave: 1610.[citation needed]

Robert Fludd's Sephirothic Tree is used in the Neon Genesis Evangelion, Fullmetal Alchemist and Blast of Tempest anime and/or manga series.[citation needed]

Same goes for both of these, I guess, though the Sephirothic Tree would additionally have to be justified as relevant to this article. Chiswick Chap (talk) 17:49, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
I agree. Any of these that lack citations should be removed. I would add that the citations should be based on independent secondary sources, not the actual fictional works themselves. - MrX 18:14, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
