Bibliography

The critical standard edition of Paracelsus's Sämtliche Werke, 15 vols., edited by Karl Sudoff and Wilhelm Mattiessen (Munich, 1922–1933), includes copious annotations and bibliographic references. Walter Pagel's Paracelsus: An Introduction to Philosophical Medicine in the Era of the Renaissance (New York, 1958) has an excellent bibliography and provides a thorough discussion of Paracelsus's sources. In his The Chemical Philosophy: Paracelsian Science and Medicine in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries, 2 vols. (New York, 1977), Allen G. Debus discusses Paracelsus's legacy and influence on later scientists. English translations of selected treatises can be found in Arthur Edward Waite's The Hermetic and Alchemical Writings of Aureolus Philippus Theophrastus Bombast, called Paracelsus the Great, 2 vols. (1894; reprint, New Hyde Park, N. Y., 1967); Henry Sigerist's Four Treatises of Theophrastus von Hohenheim (Baltimore, 1941); and Jolande Jacobi's Paracelsus: Selected Writings (New York, 1951).
