Jakob Boehme is such an intriguing figure that one cannot help but be enthralled. A 17th century Christian mystic, he was persecuted for his beliefs. Nevertheless, he was an important influence on later theologians, philosophers, and artists. The Way to Christ brings together several of his works, namely, Of True Repentance, Of Regeneration, Of True Resignation, and The Su ...more

Böhmét olvasni rendkívül nehéz. Ha költészetnek tekinti az ember (lehet, hiszen gyönyörű), vagy ha eleve abból indul ki, hogy itt most egy felsőbbrendű igazságban fog részesülni, akkor boldoggá fogja tenni az olvasás. (Jó eséllyel ilyenek voltak azok a korabeli olvasók, akik körében akkora sikereket aratott, hogy még megvédelmezni is hajlandók voltak, miközben a saját egyháza kitagadta. Még mecénásokat is talált közöttük.) Én sajnos hívő emberként sem vagyok ehhez elég egzaltált, főleg, hogy nem ...more

A very powerful and complex work which I will be unable to do justice to. I just don’t have the time at the moment! But suffice to say that I can see why some readers of ‘Paradise Lost’ regard John Milton as a Behemist, particularly passages which explain how evil, as contrary will, causes the good and presses us on toward knowing God. Evil came about, “so that the good might become perceptive, working and willing in the evil, that is, desiring to divide itself from evil and desiring to go again ...more

I waded through this tome because Cynthia Bourgeault leans heavily on Boehme to help her tie the Law of Three to Christian theology. Boehme has a creation theory that tackles not just how the world came to be but also how God birthed Godself in and through creation. Pretty wild. I can't say I understand half of it, but the bit I do understand has profoundly shaped how I think about transformation and humanity's participation in creation's ongoing evolution. ...more

Pretty much indistinguishable from psycho-babble, which explains his influence on German Idealism. I definitely agree with Samuel Johnston about Böhme: "If Jacob saw in his vision 'unutterable things,' he wanted the good sense of the apostle, or he would not have attempted to utter them." ...more

Jakob Böhme (probably April 24, 1575[1] – November 17, 1624) was a German Christian mystic and theologian. He is considered an original thinker within the Lutheran tradition, and his first book, commonly known as Aurora, caused a great scandal. In contemporary English, his name may be spelled Jacob Boehme; in seventeenth-century England it was also spelled Behmen, approximating the contemporary En ...more
