NPE 1: Vita Beata - On the Beatific Life

The notions of "Vita Beata" (beatific life) and "Seligkeit" (beatitude) are very important in Paracelsus's religious thinking. They express the idea, that by devotion and right moral behaviour the human being will be able to experience glimpses of eternal life even when still living on earth. Moreover, vita beata on earth is actually a prerequisite for the beatific life after death. Essentially, vita beata is nothing else than true Christian life.
