Example text

If materiality is only the reified quality of being graspable or perceptible, how much deeper must the infinite reality beyond our grasp be. 2f. Divinity (Gottheit) In writing of divinity, Boehme’s claim that God is constituted also by the seven divine source spirits and their respective qualities in and beyond nature is furthest from Luther. In order to accommodate the cumulativequalitative aspect of Boehme’s divine being, I translate Gottheit with the substantival adjective “divinity” rather than the noun-based Godhead or deity.

18 boehme’s vocabulary and terminology ii a This was in fact a sore point in Lutheran theology. Luther’s De servo arbitrio (1525) had laid down a formidable basis for Calvin’s teaching. Since God’s power is absolute, human free will can accomplish nothing in matters of salvation. Yet the Lutheran Concordienbuch of 1580 (Article XI, affirmative, point one)6 attempts to evade the consequence that God not only saves but damns souls to hell by distinguishing between prescience and predestination: “First of all, we must pay assiduous attention to the difference between praescientia and praedestinatio, that is, between prescience and the eternal election of God” (Anfänglich ist der Unterschied zwischen der praescientie et praedestinatione, das ist zwischen der Vorsehung und ewigen Wahl Gottes, mit Fleiß zu merken).

When he writes that God dwells in the Centrum (A 20:49), he means this focused total omnipresence. As with Cusa, the center is everywhere. Since God in Aurora is infinite and omnipresent but not identical with nature, the divine being in Aurora is characterized by “contraction” (Zusammenziehung), by “intensity” or “charged potency” (scherffe). For “Otherwise, the divinity would not persist, much less would any creature. And in this intensity, God is an all-comprehending, all-encompassing, intense God, for the birth and intensity of God are like this in all places” (“Sonst Bestünde die Gottheit nicht / viel weniger eine Creatur Vnd in diser scherffe ist Gott ein albegreifflich / vnd alle faslicher / scharffer Gott / den die geburtt vnd scherffe Gottes ist allendhalben also”—A 13:70).
