At the age of 29, upon graduating from the University of Padua, he converted to Catholicism & took the name Angelus. Altho he pursued a career as an energetic & sometimes vitriolic apologist, it was his poetry that won him a place of importance in the mystical literature of the West. By the mid-17th century the epigram had become the most widely used form for German baroque poetry. Utilizing that genre, Silesius, in Josef Schmidts words, molded the epigram into perfectly expressing what has been the intrinsic problem of any mystical writer: saying the ineffable.

The Cherubinic Wanderer over the decades has become an integral part of German religious folk literature. Admirers such as Friedrich Schlegel in the past century & Hans Urs von Balthasar & Umberto Eco in our own day have prized the work for its power, its immediacy & its beauty of expression.
