Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"This is a fine piece of scholarship. It constitutes a pioneering study of a major figure in the medieval Jewish mystical tradition. The discussion of theurgy and the experiential element within the Jewish mystical tradition are particularly important contributions to this fledgling area of study." -- Mark Verman, St. John's University

This book analyzes the use of symbolism and theurgy in two sections of the Zohar, the central text of the kabbalah. These compositions, Tiqqunei ha-Zohar and Ra'aya Meheimna have been particularly loved by kabbalists. Giller demonstrates the significance of their contributions to theosophical kabbalah.

"This book brings to the English reader a first sound and comprehensive study of the theological issues in the later strata of the Zohar." -- Ronald C. Kiener, Trinity College

Pinchas Giller is an Assistant Professor of Classics at Washington University. He is currently editing the critical edition of Tiqqunei ha-Zohar for the Zohar Project of the Hebrew University, Jerusalem.
