Boehme is a significant figure in Western thought, though almost impenetrable to the modern mind. Pretty difficult to read, especially since mystic-speak is very hard to translate effectively, but just looking at the emblems is illuminating. They were made by German and English followers; this book is a relatively simple place to start. Remember this thread?

I have a bunch of meetings this week and the person I am meeting with has chosen the Rubin as our home base for the week. I will be there a couple of hours a day tomorrow thru Friday - looking forward to many hours of seeing.
