DescriptionThe 35 epistles of Jacob Boehme, translated by John Ellistone in 1649, have run through countless editions over the centuries. But this is the first edition that adds the 20 lost epistles, translated in 1661 by John Sparrow, published once in The Remainder of Books by Jacob Behmen, 1662, then forgotten for 350 years. The Epistles are an excellent starting point for those new to JB, and the initiated will find valuable exegesis of his books and a wealth of autobiographical detail.

About the Author
Jacob Boehme (1575 - 1624) was a German Christian mystic and theologian of the Lutheran tradition. Boehme's view of a universe where a creative and destructive principle are in conflict was later repurposed by Hegel as the dialectic. Newton, Nietzsche, the Quaker George Fox, and even Phillip K. Dick have all been cited as being influenced by Boehme.
