Isidore of Seville defined the basilisk as the king of snakes, due to its killing glare and its poisonous breath.

The Venerable Bede was the first to attest to the legend of the birth of a basilisk from an egg by an old cockerel, and then other authors added the condition of Sirius being ascendant.

Theophilus Presbyter gives a long recipe in his book for creating a basilisk in order to convert copper into “Spanish gold” (de auro hyspanico).

Albertus Magnus in the De Animalibus wrote about the killing gaze of the basilisk, but he denied other legends, such as the rooster hatching the egg. He gave as source of those legends Hermes Trismegistus, who is credited also as the creator of the story about the basilisk’s ashes being able to convert silver into gold: the attribution is absolutely incorrect, but it shows how the legends of the basilisk were already linked to alchemy in 13th century.

Stories gradually added to the basilisk’s deadly capabilities, such as describing it as a larger beast, capable of breathing fire and killing with the sound of its voice. Some writers even claimed that it could kill not only by touch, but also by touching something that is touching the victim, like a sword held in their hand.

Also, some stories claim its breath is highly toxic and will cause death, usually immediately. The basilisk is also the guardian creature and traditional symbol of the Swiss city Basel.

The basilisk appears in the Bible in Isaiah 14:29 in the prophet’s exhortation to the Philistines reading, “Do not rejoice, whole country of Philistia, because the rod that beat you has broken, since the serpent’s stock can still produce a basilisk, and the offspring of that will be a flying dragon.”

The King James version of the Bible states “out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.”

In William Shakespeare’s Richard III, a widow, on hearing compliments on her eyes from her husband’s brother and murderer, retorts that she wishes they were those of a basilisk, that she might kill him.

In Act 2, Scene 4 of Shakespeare’s Cymbeline, a character says about a ring, “It is a basilisk unto mine eye, Kills me to look on’t.”

The house opposite the lantern, Schönlaterngasse 7, is home to a well-known Viennese myth.

According to this myth, on 26 June 1212 in the morning, the servant of a baker discovered a basilisk at the bottom of the well in the courtyard.

The baker’s apprentice noticed the creature and subsequently destroyed it by holding a mirror to it (looking into its eyes was known to be fatal). The basilisk exploded. The facades of the house tell this tale, which was inscribed in its walls in 1932 using the original text from 1577.

Schönlaterngasse (“beautiful lantern alley”) is a small winding alleyway in central Vienna.

In the Middle Ages it was known as Straße der Herren von Heiligenkreuz (“Street of The Gentlemen of The Holy Cross”).
