Jacob Boehme (1575-1624) was a German philosopher and a Christian mystic. He was considered an original thinker by many of his contemporaries within the Lutheran tradition, and his first book, commonly known as Aurora, caused a great scandal. The author, Franz Hartmann (1838-1912), was a German medical doctor, theosophist, occultist, geomancer, astrologer, and author. As well as writing articles on yoga, his works include several books on esoteric studies and biographies of Boehme and Paracelsus, and he translated the Bhagavad Gita into German.
