Phillippus Aureolus Paracelsus
Birth: 1493
Schwyz, Switzerland
Death: Sep. 24, 1541
Salzburg
Salzburg, Austria

Physicist, Chemist. Born Phillippus Theophratus Bombastus von Hohenheim, he was a Medieval Swiss doctor and alchemist, noted for founding medical chemistry. Educated at the University of Ferrara, he was an army physician in Denmark, (1518-21). By 1526, he settled in Austria, where he acquired a reputation as a healer. He formed the basis of medicine for the times and balanced an order to maintain health. His successful cures through chemical, as opposed to herbal, medicines served to support his theories that diseases came from outside the body and he refused to prescribe the medicines of the local apothecaries. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
