Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references (pages 209-242) and index.
Formatted Contents Note: 1. Introduction -- 2. Gender, sexuality and power in early modern England -- 3. Gender in mystical and occult thought -- 4. Gender in the works of Jacob Boehme -- 5. The reception of Behmenism in England -- 6. Behmenism and the Interregnum spiritualists -- 7. The female embassy -- 8. Conservative Behmenism -- 9. Wider Behmenist influences in the eighteenth century -- 10. Conclusion.
Summary: This is the first comprehensive account of the development of the ideas on gender of Jacob Boehme (1575-1624) among his English followers, tracing the changes in gender and sexuality in such esoteric traditions as alchemy, hermeticism and the Cabala. The book argues that Behmenist thought in these areas is a neglected aspect of the revision in the moral status of women during the early modern period, contributing significantly to the rise of the Romantic notion of womanhood and 'Victorian' sexual ideology. It deals with English Behmenism from its reception during the Interregnum through to its impact upon William Blake and the Swedenborgians in the eighteenth century. The book also challenges strongly received opinions on the relationship of Behmenism to the English radical tradition.
