from: Johannes Bartholomaeus, Libellus Poematum, ed. Bartholomaeus Andreades, 1571
The Latin poem about Theophrastus Paracelsus briefly suggests that the author (Paracelsus) is obscure and difficult to understand. It implies that even with an interpreter, only Apollo, the god of prophecy, could unravel the complex and enigmatic teachings of Paracelsus. The poem highlights the challenging and cryptic nature of Paracelsus's work.
