This homepage is addressed to all who want to learn something about the philosopher Jacob Böhme. It has been created by the members of the International Jacob Böhme Society, and has been designed and perpetuated over many years. According to the statutes of our association, we are independent of institutions and welcome all interested parties, whether they are scientifically, denominationally, historically or artistically oriented. The contributions published on these pages reflect individual opinions within the framework of the statutes and do not claim to represent the society in terms of content.
We have translated the most important pages into English and are continuously working on expanding the English language pages.

"The Works" of Jacob Böhme are provided here with their own navigation, in which the titles of Jacob Böhme's almost thirty individual works are linked in the table of contents. This takes you to the table of contents. In a few brief comments we go through each of the works of Jacob Boehme and provide an explanatory summary of the work. We make no claim to completeness and would like to offer an introduction. The comments are only available in German.
