This chapter considers the trajectory of Northern Renaissance Platonism from the fifteenth to the mid-seventeenth century. It highlights the persistence of certain topics from the time of Nicholas of Cusa to that of Jacob Böhme, while at the same time arguing that Christian Platonism remained an eclectic phenomenon, and to some extent also the production of its critics. The chapter focuses in particular on the idea of the coincidence of the opposites, especially in relation to the Divine, and on God’s presence in nature.
