KabbalahD not only as one of the most intriguing aspects of Judaism but also as an important part of a broader mystical tradition Here is one of the most enlighteni. Gershom Sholem is seen by many to be the father or modern academic study of the Kabbalah and this book is one of many that cements this reputation This is a very dense book on the subject of its title And a fascinating look at how the Kabbalah developed throughout its recorded history A lot of its very early history is lost in the murk due to it starting off as an oral tradition But Sholem was able to recover a lot of its development by pouring over and intensely studying texts that his Rabbinical contemporaries looked at as nonsense or heresies Things like the Zohar or the teachings of Sabbati Sevi and Nathan of Gaza and Isaac Luria These names will probably be known to some of people who study the Kabbalah now and that is all thanks to Gershom Sholem Without whom their radical religious ideas would have been lost to history It is all neatly summated here in this book which makes for a heavy but interesting read Mind you the book mainly concentrates on the development of the Kabbalah through history although there is a substantial chunk that introduces many of basic ideas of the Kabbalah There is even a section of personalities or influential people associated with the Kabbalah An excellent primer on an otherwise obscure subject for those willing to do heavy reading And if you are this book will not disappoint
