German magician, occult writer, and theologian Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa.

Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa

(1486 - 1535)

Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa entered the University of Cologne in 1499, served as a court secretary for Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I and later as a soldier in Northern Italy in the 1510s, saved the life of a woman accused of witchcraft around 1519, and became the physician to Louise of Savoy in 1524. Incensed by Agrippa’s refusal to recant some of his published views, Charles V of France condemned him as a heretic.
