Aureolus-Philippe-Théophraste Bambast ab Hohenheim, said Paracelse (Paracelsus in English??), was native of Einsiedeln, a little town near Zurich. This is where he was born in 1493 and it is to his father, a doctor, which he will get the taste to work on the art to heal and also to alchemy.
Working to introduce the use of mineral composure in medicine, he will discover the therapeutic properties of a large number of materials. He was also one of the funder of the hermetic medicine, thanks to his complex theories on the correspondence between the soul, the body and the outside world: to him the spirit represented God, the body the sublunary World and the ‘fluid’ the celestial bodies.
Having a passion for travels, Paracelse travelled, it is said, Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, Netherlands, Saxony, Tirol, Poland, Moravia, Transylvania, Suede and Hungary. To hear him, even if nothing is for sure, he would have also visited the East and even Finland and the Arctic regions.
Collecting without stopping curious information, interested by everything, eager to learn, the wandering scholar acquired a crowd of knowledge which made of him a man particularly alerted of a great amount of things.
Being inspired by the example given by the adept Isaac the Dutchman, he undertook to not separate the medicine from the alchemy any more. His alchemist’s good name increases of that, being a friend of the mystification and having the easy boast, Paracelse insured to who wanted to hear him that he had succeeded in making a homunculus and that he also succeeded to make a certain drinkable gold based elixir able to bring eternal youth: he hid ,by doing so, profound esoteric doctrines.
