    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The edition presents the previously unpublished theological and religious writings of Paracelsus (1493-1541) in eight volumes. After Luther and Melanchthon, Paracelsus was one of the most prolific Early High German writers, yet the Theologika were only partially accessible until today. The Zurich edition offers a reliable, critical edition of these writings, as well as word indices, introductions to the groups of works, etc. Paracelsus' non-medical writings comprise a first-class docu-ment of the intellectual history of the sixteenth century and are of great importance for language and literature historians, as well as for theologians and philosophers.
