Paracelsus , born Theophrastus von Hohenheim , was a Swiss physician, alchemist, and astrologer of the German Renaissance.He was a pioneer in several aspects of the "medical revolution" of the Renaissance, emphasizing the value of observation in combination with received wisdom. He is credited as the "father of toxicology". Paracelsus also had a substantial impact as a prophet or diviner, his "Prognostications" being studied by Rosicrucians in the 1600s. Paracelsianism is the early modern medical movement inspired by the study of his works.
„All is interrelated. Heaven and earth, air and water. All are but one thing; not four, not two and not three, but one. Where they are not together, there is only an incomplete piece.“
Paracelsus - Collected Writings Vol. I (1926) edited by Bernhard Aschner, p. 110
