No tangible details exist of the time or place of the life of Mary the Prophetess. She is mentioned by early alchemists always as an authority and with uttermost respect.
The most concrete mention of Maria the Prophetess in the context of alchemy is by Zosimos of Panopolis, who wrote in the 4th century the oldest alchemy books known. In the Alexander book (2d part) of the Persian poet Nezami, Maria, a Syrian princess, visits the court of Alexander the Great, and learns from Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC), among other things, the art of making gold.
