Paracelsus was bom at Einsiedeln in Canton and surgery. In 1506 he went to Basel University, Schwyz, on 10 Nov., 1493. His father, who was a where he displayed a liking for chemistry, and he licentiate of medicine, gave his son a careful afterwards lived for some time with Trithemius, general training, besides instruction in medicine and from him went to the mines which belonged to

[p. 171]

Sigismund Fugger, where he acquired knowledge not only of metals, their ores and working, but of the diseases of the work-people as well. To increase his knowledge and to make the acquaintance of skilled and learned men he began a long course of travel throughout Europe, studied at various universities, and, it is said, acted as a field surgeon. After an absence of many years he returned to Germany with a great reputation, and in 1527 was appointed physician to the town of Basel. At first he met with much acceptance, and his practice increased, as he was successful in his cures when other physicians failed. It was not long, however, before he met with opposition from the ordinary physicians; his doctrines were contrary to theirs, he was an unbeliever in Galen and Avicenna, he was a jealous critic of the bond which united the physicians and the druggists, and he was not at all moderate in the language he employed in controversy. The strained relations which had thus grown up reached at last the breaking point over the case of the Canon Lichtenfels, who, having refused Paracelsus his promised fee for curing him, was summoned by him before the judges. They, however, decided against Paracelsus, who stated without any reserve his opinion of their verdict. After this, by the advice of his friends, Paracelsus got away from Basel as quickly as he could, and began the wandering life which he henceforth spent. He finally came to Saltzburg by the invitation of the Archbishop, and it looked as if he might settle there in a good position. This expectation however was not fulfilled, as he died shortly afterwards on 24 Sept, 1541.

 Paracelsus’ works are numerous, and were often printed.

 They were collected first by Huser, 1589–91, in ten volumes, 4°, and other collected editions appeared in Latin and in German, in folio and quarto, details of which are given in the bibliographies.

 A special set of his writings have been collected and turned into English by A. E. Waite: ‘The Hermetic and Alchemical Writings of Aureolus Philippus Theophrastus Bombast,’ London, 1894, 2 vols., 4°.

 For the separate English translations of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, see my Bibliographia Paracelsica, Part iii., 1890, pp. 31–49.

 Quite recently a new edition of his works has been projected, of which one part has appeared: Theophrastus Paracelsus Das Buch Paragranum, herausgegeben und eingeleitet von Dr. Phil. Franz Strunz. Verlegt bei Eugen Diederichs, Leipzig, 1903, square 8°, pp. [4] 112, with a portrait.

 For an account of all known editions of Paracelsus’ works with the fullest bibliographical details, reference must be made to the great monograph of Dr. Sudhoff, which not only supersedes all other bibliographies of Paracelsus, but is the most complete and thorough of any author whatever.

 The expounders and critics of Paracelsus require to be considered cautiously. Some, and especially the older writers, are prejudiced, unsympathetic, and unperceptive; others are over enthusiastic and read more into Paracelsus’ words and views than they contain. But, whatever may be thought of himself or of his doctrines, Paracelsus will endure as one of the greatest forces of the sixteenth century. He revolutionized medicine.

 Articles on Paracelsus are to be found in every biographical dictionary, in every history of medicine and of its fundamental sciences, the consolidation of which was one of his great aims, and he is the theme of numerous, not to say innumerable, monographs. As he confined his researches to no one topic, but discoursed on theology, philosophy, science, as well as on medicine and surgery, and as he provoked opposition in all, Paracelsus-literature is voluminous, and references to him and his views pervaded chemical and medical literature for long after his decease. Only a few indications, however, can be given.
