Title: Mysterium Magnum - Erflarung Uber Das Erste Buch
Description: Amsterdam, 1730. hardcover. 8vo. 896pp folding engraved plate, foxed and browned, contemporary calf, gilt, upper joint cracking. GERMAN TEXT. Written in 1623, when his powers of expression had developed to their full, Mysterium Magnum is central to his work. Taking the form of an interpretation of Genesis, it outstrips its apparent confines, explaining the popularity of his work among followers as varied as Hegel, Law, Blake and Berdyaev. From the first sentence it leads to the heart of the experience of all mystics: 'When we consider the visible world with its essence, and consider the life of the creatures, then we find therein the likeness of the invisible spiritual world, which is hidden in the visible world as the soul in the body; and we see thereby that the hidden God is nigh unto all and, through all, and yet wholly bidden to the visible essence.'. Good- .
