Pápai Páriz, András
Pápai Páriz was born in 1703 in Nagyenyed (Aiud), the son of the
renowned physician, writer and professor Ferenc Pápai Páriz, Sen. (1649-1716),
and of Judit Nyirő (?-1710). He was the Benjamin of his
father, especially after he lost his mother at an early age. He
went to higher studies (subscribed) in Nagyenyed in 1719, and then went to the
university of Frankfurt an der Oder, where he graduated in
medicine in 1732. Then he also studied at the universities of
Leipzig and Halle. He got into bad company, and because of his
debts his fatherly heritage was sold on auction at home. Later he
practised in Kolozsvár (Cluj), where he became a renowned
physician. He died, however, poor and lonely in 1763, leaving his
books – among them those inherited from his father and his brother
– and his botanical collection to the Reformed college of Cluj.
His work is: Dissertatio inauguralis medica de
vero et necessario medicorum arcano. Francofurti ad Viadrum,
