This study addresses important aspects of Paracelsian concepts within the context of contemporary science and literature. This emphasizes the international dissemination and propagation of Paracelsian ideas during the 16th and 17th centuries, and analyzes different aspects of his work and influence: for example, his ideas on magic, medicine and mantic art; his relation to the Jewish tradition; and the controversies caused by Paracelsian authors. Special attention is given to the impact of Paracelsus on the Rosicrucian movement. The book should be of interest to historians of medicine, literature and culture in the 16th and 17th centuries.
