Similarly parallel texts appear in the Naturliche Auslegung von der Schopfung and the Viererlei Auslegung von der Schopfung: Pfefferl notes the difficulty of ascribing authorship to parts of the latter work, offering an attribution of different sections of the work to Weigel and an unknown "compiler.
Most of writings were edited posthumously by a group of followers (Weigel's most famous writing are Vom Gesetz oder Willen Gottes, Gnothi seauton, and Der guldene Griff, Alle Ding ohne Irrthumb zu erkennen, vielen Hochgelahrten unbekannt, und doch allen Menschen nothwendig zu wissen, which contain a mystical theory of cognition with special attention to visual perception and have been reedited by Horst Pfefferl in 1996 and 1997) and influenced Jakob Bohme and other seventeenth-century Protestant mystics.
