Sample text

Ii a lutheran literary culture 17 to eternity,’ or ‘All things in All,’ we should take this to mean the entire God” (Den wen man spricht alles. oder von Ewigkeit zu ewigkeit / oder alles in allem / So ver stehe hie mitte den Gantzen Gott—A 2:18; cf. 19:26). The references by Paul to God as revealed in the fullness of time as “all in all”4 confirm the divine omnipresence. The principle of “all in all” configures the structure of Boehme’s writings by suggesting thematic leaps from any subject to any other, from the divine to the angelic to the human to the elemental.

2a. Election of Grace (Gnaden-Wahl) Boehme was preoccupied with two teachings central to the conflicts of his time: the doctrine of Christ’s real, invisible yet physical, presence in the bread and wine of the Abendmahl or Lord’s Supper with its corollary assertion of the omnipresence of the trinitarian deity;5 and the Lutheran doctrinal rejection of Jean Calvin’s teaching of predestination or “election of grace” (Gnaden-Wahl). Aurora is distinguished by its aggressive defense of free will against Calvinist predestination or election of grace.

2d. Paradox of the Greatest and Smallest (Centrum) In referring to the Centrum, Boehme has in mind not a midpoint but the omnipresence of the divine infinite in the finite. In maintaining the invisible omnipresence of a personal God, Luther evoked paradoxes comparable to Nicholas of Cusa’s. In Luther’s words: “The divine power … cannot be enclosed and encompassed. For it is incomprehensible and immeasurable, beyond and above everything that is or can be. Yet on the other hand, it must in all places be real (wesentlich) and present, even in the most trifling tree leaf” (Die Göttliche gewalt aber mag und kan nicht also beschlossen und abgemessen sein.
