Kabbalah in Italy, 1280-1510: A Survey

Kabbalah in Italy, 1280-1510: A Survey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This sweeping survey of the history of Kabbalah in Italy represents a major contribution from one of the world s foremost Kabbalah scholars. The first to focus attention on a specific center of Kabbalah, Moshe Idel charts the ways that Kabbalistic thought and literature developed in Italy and how its unique geographical situation facilitated the arrival of both Spanish and Byzantine Kabbalah. Idel analyzes the work of three major Kabbalists Abraham Abulafia, Menahem Recanati, and Yohanan Alemanno who represent diverse schools of thought: the ecstatic, the theosophical-theurgical, and the astromagical. Directing special attention to the interactions and tensions among these forms of Jewish Kabbalah and the nascent Christian Kabbalah, Idel brings to light the rich history of Kabbalah in Italy and the powerful influence of this important center on the emergence of Christian Kabbalah and European occultism in general.
