Review by albertgoldfain
A vast collection of annotated passages from the Zohar and other Kabbalistic texts. I enjoy the scholastic theology and historical tradition of the Kabbalists even when their mysticism is somewhat medieval. Shows how Judaism evolved and branched in the middle ages while remaining true to the Torah.
