Jacob Behmen


Jacob Behmen, the greatest of the mystics, and the father of German
philosophy, was all his life nothing better than a working shoemaker. He
was born at Old Seidenberg, a village near Goerlitz in Silesia, in the
year 1575, and he died at Goerlitz in the year 1624. Jacob Behmen has no
biography. Jacob Behmen's books are his best biography. While working
with his hands, Jacob Behmen's whole life was spent in the deepest and
the most original thought; in piercing visions of GOD and of nature; in
prayer, in praise, and in love to GOD and man. Of Jacob Behmen it may be
said with the utmost truth and soberness that he lived and moved and had
his being in GOD. Jacob Behmen has no biography because his whole life
was hid with CHRIST in GOD.
