This second volume of Jewish Spirituality takes us into two periods different from any that preceded them and radically different from each other. The rapidity of change in the geographical locus of Jewish life, the political situation of Jewry, and the degree of loyalty of Jews to their ancient traditions have been tremendous. Indeed, it is hard to believe, in the long sweep of Jewish history, that the great revival of spiritual lore that took place among the Safed Kabbalists happened a mere four hundred years ago.
Part of the World Spirituality series, this is a broad-ranging, illustrated, scholarly treatment of core topics in Jewish spirituality from the Middle Ages to the present.
