This is a 1901 edition of The Supersensual Life by German philosopher and mystic, Jacob Boehme. From the Preface: 'Jacob Behmen's outward life was simplicity itself. He was born in the year 1575 at Alt Seidenberg, a village among pastoral hills, near Görlitz in Lusatia, a son of poor peasants...The selections contained in the present book belong rather to the practical or ethical side of Jacob Behmen's teaching than to his Cosmogony, or Vision, as one may best call it, of the nature of all things. I think that any old cottager, who had read nothing but his Bible, but had lived his life, would well understand the general teaching of most that is contained in these Dialogues, and would find all Behmen's words most beautiful and comforting.'
This book has 65 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1624. This edition, edited by Bernard Holland, was first published in 1901.
