Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Aurora (Morgen Röte im auffgang, 1612) and Fundamental Report (Gründlicher Bericht, Mysterium Pansophicum, 1620) contains the table of contents and the acknowledgements. This book commemorates the four-hundredth anniversary of an intriguing anomaly of the early modern era: the appearance in manuscript in 1612 and the suppression in 1613 of an enduringly influential writing by the shoemaker Jacob Boehme (ca. 1575-1624): Morgen Röte im auffgang ("Morning Glow Ascending", more commonly known as Aurora). The mystery resides in the apparent incongruity of an uneducated shoemaker and self-professed "simple" man whose ingenious writings were nonetheless capable of influencing poets and philosophers for centuries to come.

Keywords: Aurora; Mysterium Pansophicum; mystical religion; philosophy; poetry
