Description: Major reinterpretation of Kabbalah. Using a vast number of esoteric sources, a great part of them in manuscripts, Idel discusses the entire range of Jewish mysticism from late antiquity to nineteenth-century Hasidism. He provides fresh insights into the origins of Jewish mysticism, the nature of the Jewish mystical experience, the relation between mystical and historical experience, and the impact of Jewish mysticism on western civilization.
