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)

Nothing is cool without the Illuminati![edit]

"The first manifesto was influenced by the work of the respected hermetic philosopher Heinrich Khunrath, of Hamburg, author of the Amphitheatrum Sapientiae Aeternae (1609) who himself had borrowed generously from the work of John Dee. It referred favourably to the role played by the Illuminati and it featured a convoluted manufactured history dating back to archaic mysteries of the Middle East..."

Amazing! Especially since the Order of the Illuminati (follow the link) was founded in 1776 -- 167 years after Khunrath published his Amphitheatrum. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:22, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
