Paracelsus (1493-1541) was a wandering Bible preacher and healer. He was interested in prophecy, and awaited Christ’s 2nd Coming.

Paracelsus made reference to great calamities beginning, followed by a coming visit of God and the end of man.

He foretold bloodshed and social upheavals.

He was also an innovative chemist and physician. He attributed miner’s lung diseases to inhalation of metal vapors.
