He studied at the University of Vienna , then traveled a lot, at one time was a professor in Vienna and in 1518 settled as a doctor in his hometown. Vadian was a close friend of Zwingli , corresponded with Luther and Erasmus , took part in religious disputes, and generally contributed a lot to the success of the Reformation, especially since he was elected to the mayor of St. Gallen. Vadian enjoyed great authority in the eyes of Paracelsus , who addressed him in letters, but Vadian himself was wary of Luther Medicine.
Vadianus wrote many poems and research on theological issues. It should be recognized as capital labor: “Chronik der Aebte von St.-Gallen”, published by Getzinger in V.'s deutsche historische Schriften (St.-Gallen, 1875 , 1877 ). In addition, Vadian owns the works: Commentarii in Pomponium Melam ( Vienna , 1518 ) and Aphorismorum libri VI de consideratione eucharistiae.
