Roger Bacon, a 13th century Franciscan Friar, who is considered one of the earliest proponents of the scientific method, is considered the first real European alchemist. (Prior to Bacon, there was some exploration of alchemical theory and ideas, but no real practitioners.) He was primarily interested in the elixir of life and some form of ingestible gold which would prolong life. Bacon's writings on alchemy were used by many other practitioners well into the 19th century.
