Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim [Paracelsus]. Reproduction, 1927, of etching by A. Hirschvogel, 1538.

Paracelsus

The first A Legacy of Heresy t-shirt is The Hermetic Heretic himself, Paracelsus. He was steeped in reforming the medical field in the 16th century. He is known as the father of toxicology and wrote about demonology and the occult. He even wrote his own magical alphabet around the time the Enochian Keys were created! He used his Alphabet of the Magi to craft sigils and talismans for use in his treatments.

His motto was ‘Alterius non sit qui suus esse potest’ which translates to: Let no man belong to another who can belong to himself. It speaks to the Satanists celebration of individualism; We are our own God after all.
