“Historiograph” Note #98

98. “God can do nothing without me…” Transposition. This was a claim sometimes made by those who considered themselves the most advanced adepts of the Free Spirit—a claim that must be understood as quite different from, and in some ways far more radical than, the sometime claim of various medieval heretics (including some of the Free Spirit) that they were. See Cohn, Pursuit, 172-76, especially 176.
