The 1540 portrait of Aureolus Philippus Theophrastus Bombast
(1493-1541), also known as Paracelsus the Great (by Hirschvogel)
Preface to the English Translation
There are many respects in which Paracelsus at the present day seems to be little more than a name. Even among professed mystics the knowledge concerning him, very meagre and very indefinite, is knowledge that has been obtained at second hand, in most cases from Eliphas Levi, who in his Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie, and again in his Histoire de la Magie, has delivered an intuitive judgment upon the German “Monarch of Arcana”, expressed epigrammatically, after the best manner of a Frenchman.
