Theophrastus Bombastus Von Hohenheim, called Paracelsus (1493-1541)

THEOPHRASTUS BOMBASTUS VON HOHENHEIM, called PARACELSUS (1493-1541) was born in Einsiedeln, Switzerland. One of the most controversial figures in medicine, he is either called a ridiculous charlatan, half-baked theorist or an honest man who was a great physician and a staunch fighter for what he considered the truth, who by his empirical observations of nature helped establish the experimental basis of science and medicine.
