Historical Background

While salamanders are real creatures, amphibians who reside on land near water and in shallow waters, it may seem strange how these creatures of moisture can be associated with fire. There is a mythological Salamander. In Medieval occultism (specifically that from Paracelsus, a 16th Century alchemist and occultist), the Salamander is the elemental of Fire. They are depicted as lizards which resemble the real salamanders, but which reside in fires. The Salamander was not invented by Paracelsus. It appeared in heraldry, usually sitting in a fire. The other elementals were: Undine (Water), Gnome (Earth), Sylph (Air).
