Robert Fludd - Mosaical PhilosophyThis work was first published in Latin as Philosophia Moysaica, Gouda, 1638, and an English version was issued Mosaicall Philosophy, Humphrey Moseley, London 1659. Here I have extracted books one and two of the second section. This is the piece that I published in 1979 as item 2 in the Magnum Opus series The Mosaical Philosophy - Cabala.
SECTION TWOBOOK ONE
Chapter 1 In this Chapter it is demonstrated that God is that pure and catholic Unity, which includes and comprehends in itself all multiplicity.
Chapter 2 Wherein it is proved that all things were complicitly and ideally in God, and of God, before they were made.
Chapter 3 How that amiable and bright emanation of vivifying Love, shone forth from the Fountain of all goodness, and displaced litigious and odious darkness from the Throne of the obscure Chaos or dark Abyss, that thereby a World might be made of nothing that was actual, and beautified by the formal presence thereof.
