Schönherr, Johann Heinrich

Memel, Prussia; tried to develop a dualistic system (which posited 2 primitive potencies [named fire and water, or light and darkness], one male and active, the other female and passive, both personal and having intellect, will, form, and color; from their union resulted the universe, including God) in harmony with revelation.
