This Course will explore the world of Kabbalah, the ancient mystical tradition of Judaism. We will examine the creative ways in which Kabbalists saw the world: their views of an androgenous God, the central role of humanity in expediting redemption, the daring sexual symbolism of the Tree of Life, and the role of meditation and prayer in rectifying both god and the world. We will also look at the substantial influence Kabbalah exercised on Renaissance thought, Christian theology, and Western esotericism. The course will conclude with a short glance at Kabbalah’s contemporary revival.
