About the Author
Gerhard (Gershom) Scholem (1897-1982) was a scholar of Jewish mysticism who revolutionized the understanding of kabbalah and its history. “...all of us have students, schools - said of him Martin Buber,- but only Gershom Scholem has created a whole academic discipline!” Prolific author, he published more 40 books and almost 700 articles. He also raised three generations of scholars of Kabbala. Scholem was among a select group of German-Jewish intellectuals from the Weimar period who rejected their parent's assimilationism in favor of Jewish nationalism and made aliyah. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
