The highly condensed and often coded philosophical messages of some of Silesius' epigrams are translated into English and reinterpreted in a way that they reveal their universality and relevance to modern times. The «Word» is a recurring topic in the Cherubinischer Wandersmann. The «Word» (Logos) is closely related to the idea of creation. In Angelus Silesius, creation, both divine and human, is a central issue. The topic of creation is of keen interest to the contemporary reader as well, for it ties in with current theories of mind-matter connections of both post-Einsteinian physicists and contemporary psychoanalysis. Thus the Silesian «Angel» of seventeenth-century Germany has much to say to the modern reader in all places.
