Paracelsus was born and raised in the village of Einsiedeln in Switzerland.
His father, Wilhelm Bombast von Hohenheim, was a Swabian (German) chemist and physician.
His mother was Swiss and probably a bondswoman of the abbey of Einsiedeln in Switzerland where he was born; He specifically accounts for being tutored by Johannes Trithemius, abbot of Sponheim.
At the age of 16 he started studying medicine at the University of Basel, later moving to Vienna.
Paracelsus appears to have been very well traveled, so it is probable that he was involved in the many wars waged between 15 in Holland, Scandinavia, Prussia, Tartary, the countries under Venetian influence, and possibly the near East. He gained a reputation for being arrogant and soon garnered the anger of other physicians in Europe. He was prone to many outbursts of abusive language, abhorred untested theory, and ridiculed anybody who placed more importance on titles than practice ('if disease put us to the test, all our splendor, title, ring, and name will be as much help as a horse's tail').
During his time as a professor at University of Basel, he invited barber-surgeons, alchemists, apothecaries, and others lacking academic background to serve as examples of his belief that only those who practiced an art knew it: 'The patients are your textbook, the sickbed is your study.' He held the chair of medicine at the University of Basel and city physician for less than a year.
During his life, he was compared with Luther partly because his ideas were different from the mainstream and partly because of openly defiant acts against the existing authorities in medicine, such as his public burning of ancient books.
Based on historical accounts, Paracelsus cured Frobenius.During that time, the Dutch Renaissance humanist Erasmus von Rotterdam, also at the University of Basel, witnessed the medical skills of Paracelsus, and the two scholars initiated a letter dialogue on medical and theological subjects.Paracelsus' most important legacy is likely his critique of the scholastic methods in medicine, science and theology.Much of his theoretical work does not withstand modern scientific thought, but his insights laid the foundation for a more dynamic approach in the medical sciences.
He angered his colleagues by lecturing in German instead of Latin in order to make medical knowledge more accessible to the common people. He was the first to publicly condemn the medical authority of Avicenna and Galen and threw their writings into a bonfire on St. In 1526 he bought the rights of citizenship in Strasbourg to establish his own practice.
But soon after he was called to Basel to the sickbed of Johann Froben or Frobenius, a successful printer and publisher.
