Mysticism and Madness : The Religious Thought of Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav, Hardback Book

Mysticism and Madness : The Religious Thought of Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav Hardback

Part of the The Robert and Arlene Kogod Library of Judaic Studies series

Description

Two hundred years since Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav's demise, his philosophical writings and literary creation remain lively and provocative materials in both Jewish culture and the New-Age movement.

Key elements of Rabbi Nachman's magic and magnetic force are illuminated in this research, which presents Bratslavian mysticism as a unique link in the history of Jewish mysticism.

The mystical worldview is the axis of this book, but its branches stretch out to key issues in the Bratslavian world such as belief and imagination, dreams and the land of Israel, melodies and song.
