Even today, he presents a challenge to science. We may laugh at the Renaissance physicians and their notion of humours, and the apothecaries who ignored mercury compounds and laudanum. We can wonder how Paracelsus’ writings on anæsthesia using ***‘sweet vitriol’ (ether)*** could be ignored for centuries, until finally being followed up 1846. We can readily believe that he was in some ways 400 years ahead of him time – but was he, perhaps, even more advanced than that?
