Requirements: .PDF reader, 109.6 MB
Overview: This study of Hasidic mysticism and its kabbalistic roots provides and excellent introduction to Hasidism. Methodical in its approach, it discusses the theology, history, and major figures of Hasidism as well as its complex links to kabbalah, Shabbateanism, and post-Shabbatean texts. As such it opens a new window on the religious experience while also making a valuable contribution to the study of the eighteenth century as a key period in the formation of modern Jewry.
