The Zohar is the medieval compendium of Jewish esoteric and mystical teaching and the basis of the Kabbalistic faith. It is, however, a notoriously difficult text, full of hidden codes, concealed meanings, obscure symbols and ecstatic expression. This study, based upon several decades of modern Zohar scholarship, unravels the historical and intellectual origins of this rich text and provides an introduction to its themes, complex symbolism, narrative structure and language. This title is therefore a companion to the Zohar itself, as well as a resource for scholars and students interested in mystical literature, particularly that of the West, from the Mmiddle Ages to the present.

Reviews for A Guide to the Zohar

This work can stand on its own as an excellent introduction to the Zohar , the central text of the Jewish mystical tradition. It is highly recommended to anyone interested in Jewish mysticism and would make an excellent text for undergraduate courses. — Religious Studies Review
