Aureolus Philippus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim. Bombast ab Hohenheim, Aureolus Philippus Theophrastus Bombast von Hohenheim, Aureolus Philippus Theophrastus Bombast von Hohenheim, Philipp Aureolus Theophrast In the book "Paragranum" Paracelsus describes the four pillars of medicine: natural philosophy as the science of the things dwelling in nature, astronomy as the science of the interplay between cosmos and humans, alchemy as the science of the purification and transformation of matter and especially of drugs, and finally the virtue or the ethics of the physician.
In the "Opus paramirum" Paracelsus goes on to outline his vast vision of a new medicine, presenting a theory of the pathogenic action of the three primary substances sulphur, mercury and salt, in addition a theory of the primordial matrix as generalization of the maternal womb, and finally a theory of the above mentioned tartaric diseases. Among the theoretical writings there are also a treatise on urine, a commentary on the aphorisms of Hippocrats and other things. Surgery in medieval and early modern times involved above all the treatment of wounds, abscesses, fistulas, rashes and other skin diseases rather than the application of surgical operations.
The surgical writings contain a large number of clinical observations and detailed prescriptions. It was customary for physicians to give descriptions of spas and their salutary effects. These writings present predictions and prophecies which were based on the observation of planets, comets, solar eclipses, exceptional rainbows and other heavenly constellations.
The astronomical casting of annual prognostications in the form of calendars meant a significant contribution to many a physician's income. Following this tradition, Paracelsus wrote some ten prognostications printed in his lifetime. Not insignificant are the magical writings which are presupposing an invisible, magical side of nature with ghosts, nature spirits and demons, in fact a world not contradicting with Biblical issues. For the Renaissance mind, natural magic was nothing but a seemingly logic extrapolation of natural philosophy to invisible realms.
If this immense work would have been completed by Paracelsus and published earlier, it could have performed a considerable impact on the prescientific views of the 16th century. Essentially, Paracelsus's theological writings are commentaries to the Bible, so to the Book of Daniel, to the prophet Isaiah and to the Ten Commandments. The commentaries to the Psalms and to the Gospel of St. Matthew even belong to the most voluminous of the complete works.

Paracelsus dealt with current issues of the church reformation as baptism, penitence, matrimony and Christian ethics with all its social impact. Further writings treat of the "Vita Beata", the beatific life to be attained already on earth in anticipation of eternal life, then of the Virgin Mary and of the Eucharist. As to the healings, miracles and exorcisms described in the Gospels, Paracelsus tried to imbed them in his world view, which based on natural philosophy and magic.
Paracelsus summarizes here the key points of his teachings and defends his peculiar way of thinking. He was a member of the Hermetic cult, and his works are largely unintelligible. He believed in the "three principles" of Arabian alchemists, consisting of mercury characterized by fluidity, heaviness, and metallicity , sulfur characterized by the principle of inflammability , and salt characterized by the principles of solidity and relative chemical inertness.
Nonetheless, he is known as the father of modern pharmacology because of his work in the chemical treatment of medical ailments. He was closer to the truth than Galen , whose books he burned in public, in ascribing disease to "infectious seeds" one of the first suggestions that disease was localized rather than an imbalance in the four humors. He therefore also rejected bloodletting. He rejected previous medical views, believing that "like" cures were required for "like" ailments.
