The Life of Jacob Behmen
By: Hotham, Durand
1653. This work tells a short tale of the life of Jacob Behmen or Jakob Bohme, the German mystic. His philosophy was especially concerned with the problem of evil and rested on the thesis of the dualism of God. His writings were a strong influence on the development of idealism, Romanticism and theology, particularly of Quakers and Pietists. Due to the age and scarcity of the original we reproduced, some pages may be spotty, faded or difficult to read. Written in Old English.
