Product Description

This is a verbatim reprints of Hartmann’s biography of Jacob Boehme. It includes a broad yet detailed survey of his teachings on a wide range of subjects, including cosmology, anthropogenesis, angelology, the Christ, spiritual redemption, regeneration, death and eternal life, etc. Jakob Böhme (1575-1624) was a German Christian mystic and one of the most prominent Theosophists of the mediaeval ages. He is considered to have been an inspired and original thinker, and his books caused much controversy and strong reactions from his contemporaries, particularly “Aurora” (or “Die Morgenroete im Aufgang”, “The rising of Dawn”). He wrote prolifically in his later years, and became known post mortem for his major works “De Signatura Rerum” (The Signature of All Things) and “Mysterium Magnum.” http://www.wisdomworld.org/setting/boehme.html http://www.theosophy-nw.org/theosnw/world/modeur/ph-gfk.htm http://theosophy.wiki/w-en/index.php?title=Jakob_B%c3%b6hme
