'''Valentin Weigel''' ([[1533]]-[[1588]]) was a German theologian, philosopher and mystical writer, from [[Saxony]], and an important precursor of later [[theosophy]]. In English he is often called Valentine Weigel.
 
He was born at [[Hayn]], near [[Dresden]], into a Catholic family. He studied at [[Meissen]], [[Leipzig]], et [[Wittenberg]]. In 1567 he became pastor at [[Zschopau]], near [[Chemnitz]]. There he lived out a quiet life, engaged in his writings.
His mysticism was marked by that of [[Johannes 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.
