Event Details

This event finished on 05 July 2019


Jacob Böhme (1575-1624) is one of the most important German thinkers: he made an impact on literature, philosophy, religion and art well beyond national borders. 100 years after the Reformation, Böhme argued for a far-reaching philosophical and spiritual renewal.

This exhibition in Coventry Cathedral will introduce Böhme’s thought and his influence in Britain. Böhme’s vision of a harmonious world and his creative language inspired many English poets and artists, including John Milton, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and especially William Blake who was deeply impressed by Böhme’s writings on the role of the divine in human imagination. Böhme’s emphasis on the dignity of humanity and on peace and freedom make his writings more timely than ever.

During usual Cathedral opening hours, restrictions may apply.
