On the Kabbalah and Its Symbolism

Books

Gershom Scholem guides the reader through central themes in the intricate history of the Kabbalah. He clarifies the relations between mysticism and established religious authority; the mystics' interpretation of the Torah and their attempts to discover the hidden meaning underlying Scripture; the tension between the philosophical and the mystical concept of God; and the symbolism employed in mystical religion. He conveys his immense erudition with a lucidity that has earned him the admiration of the scholarly world and the appreciation of lay readers.
