Luminal Darkness

Imaginal Gleanings from Zoharic Literature

Elliot R. Wolfson

Renowned as one of the world’s most astute interpreters of Kabbalistic texts, Elliot Wolfson offers an illuminating and original presentation of Kabbalah. Combining its wisdom with Western philosophical heritage from Plato to Heidegger and beyond, synergy guides his elucidation of the fundamentals of Jewish mysticism and shapes his taxonomy of Kabbalistic thought.

An insightful collection of seminal essays written between 1986 and 1998, Luminal Darkness reveals the unmistakably poetic nature of this important scholar’s creative process, and delineates the evolution of his thinking on the role and importance of the Zohar in Kabbalistic tradition.
