Paracelsus( Visual )

2 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in German and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Feature film celebrating the life and work of 16th century anti-establishment Swiss scholar and healer, Paracelsus. Made by G.W. Pabst the film combines realism with magical scenes including one of Pabst's most famous in which Death, in the disguise of a juggler, enters a town stricken by plague and invites the sick inhabitants to join him in a dance. It has been suggested that the political angle of the film reveals Pabst's Nazi sympathies and it is true that interest in Paracelsus reached a peak in early 1940's Germany. This film can therefore be viewed as a window into what appealed to the early-1940s German mentality as well as being a beautifully crafted depiction of a fascinating and important medical historical figure
