Example text

Perhaps the modern notion of angst does as well as any other. 9 "Und heisset Gott nach dem ersten Principio nicht Gott, sondern Grimmigkeit, Zornigkeit, ernstlicher Quell, davon sich das Bose urkundet" (De tribus principiis, i, 8). "And God is not called God according to the first Principle; but according to that, he is called Wrathfulness, Anger, the earnest [severe or tart] Source, from which Evil ... (has its} Original" (Bohme, Works, i: 10). 10 "so nun nicht das andere Principium in der Geburt des Sohnes anbrache und aufginge, so ware der Vater ein finster Thai" (De tribus principiis 4, 58).

Wishing to become brighter and more powerful than God, Lucifer exerted contraction in himself to such a degree that the sweet quality was dried up and his body became hard, cold and dark, unable to receive light/love. At this point, Bohme states that God could not foresee this rebellion (or it would not have been a free act) and that he was powerless to prevent it: he could not meet Lucifer with love because Lucifer had already rejected love, while meeting him with anger would only have hastened his downfall.

In the circumstances, it is of primary importance to uncover the aims and strategies that shaped Franckenberg's Bohme-myth. To achieve this, one must recognize the text's genre, the conventions and assumptions on which it relies. That is to say, one must recognize its remarkable conformity to hagiography in the principle governing the selection of material, in the interpretations this receives, and in the personal traits attributed to the hero. Franckenberg's Bohme, in other words, is in every respect a typical, or stereotypical, saint, and may well bear no more resemblance to the actual historical person than the legendary heroes of medieval hagiography did.
