He kept his ideas secret, entrusting them only to personal friends (in contrast to [[Jakob Böhme]]). He carried out his parish duties, keeping a low profile. He left around 6000 pages in printed or manuscript works. His ideas on human nature were only gradually and posthumously published. [[Johann Arndt]], [[Gottfried Arnold]] et [[Gottfried Leibniz]] helped to spread Weigel's ideas.
His mysticism was marked by that of [[JeanJohannes Tauler]] and by doctrines of[[Paracelsus]]; he was also a follower of [[Sebastian Franck]] and
[[Caspar Schwenckfeldt]]. Like these two latter, he emphasised the inner life.
