Published by Ouroboros Press

Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, better known as Paracelsus was not only a man of words but also of action! In his lifetime Paracelsus managed to write many alchemical treatises and traveled extensively in Europe. His unfailing pursuit of Hermetic praxis and his dogged criticism of sophists and physicians alike brought infamy upon him. Yet despite his rough and tumble lifestyle Paracelsus was responsible for emphasizing the medicinal aspect of the alchemical art while at the same time expanding the lexicon of terminology used by alchemists, magicians and mystics even to this day. In bringing these two Paracelsian texts together Ouroboros Press presents an engaging view into the world of a Renaissance alchemist. The Aurora of the Philosophers has long been considered a classic among his texts and his Prophecies are unforgiving in their visionary explication and are illustrated by 32 emblematic woodcuts.

128 pages, containing a frontis-portrait of Paracelsus and 32 woodcut Emblems depicting symbolic interpretations of his prophecies.
