Nope. Oculists. As in, eye doctors. They were a real guild, just like stone masons. And they secretly studied banned books from Arab sources on optics, anatomy, etc. and used that knowledge to establish the first ocular medicine in Europe. For example, they introduced the first cataract surgeries into Europe.
Like stone masons, alchemists, etc, some of them turned their craft into "real" science, but some were just as into the occult stuff as anybody else.
