The second edition of a volume in the ‘Magnum Opus Hermetic Sourceworks’ series introducing the ideas and spiritual philosophy of a seventeenth-century Christian mystic. As a young man, Boehme, an unschooled shoemaker, experienced an intense vision of the origin of the universe, the struggle of polarities in creation, and the role of Sophia or Divine Wisdom in the world. In trying to find a language to communicate his mystical perceptions, he turned to alchemical ideas and Hermetic imagery.

This condensation is taken from William Law’s translation of Boehme’s complete works, and includes Law’s Illustration of the Deep Principles of Jacob Boehme, with thirteen emblematic figures designed by Dionysius Freher.
