Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Behmenism, also Behemenism and similar, is the English-language designation for a 17th Century European Christian movement based on the teachings of German mystic and theosopher Jakob B hme (1575-1624). The term was not usually applied by followers of B hme's theosophy to themselves, but rather was used by some opponents of B hme's thought as a polemical term. The origins of the term date back to the German literature of the 1620s, when opponents of B hme's thought, such as the Thuringian antinomian Esajas Stiefel, the Lutheran theologian Peter Widmann and others denounced the writings of B hme and the B hmisten. When his writings began to appear in England in the 1640s, B hme's surname was irretrievably corrupted to the form "Behmen" or "Behemen," whence the term "Behmenism" developed. A follower of B hme's theosophy is a "Behmenist."show more
