Daniel Mögling

Daniel Mögling born 1596 in Böblingen, died 1635 in Butzbach, was an alchemist and a Rosicrucian. He was personal physician and court astronomer to Philip III, Landgrave of Hesse-Butzbach from 1621 to 1635.

He is believed to have written Speculum Sophicum Rhodostauroticum ("The Mirror of the Wisdom of the Rosy Cross"), in 1618 under the pseudonym Teophilus Schweighardt Constantiens and Jhesus Nobis Omnia – Rosa Florescens (1617) under the pseudonym Florentinus de Valentia.

He translated Philip Sidney's novel Arcadia into German language.[1]
