Synopsis

The Sefer Yetsirah, the Book of Creation, is a core text of the early kabbalah, yet has remained something of a mystery. Scholars have struggled to establish the most basic facts about the work: its dating, its place of origin, and especially its meaning. The words and images of Sefer Yetsirah raise crucial questions about the history of kabbalah, and about scholarly categories for understanding it. In the end, this books shows that the relation between religion and magic is closer than we think.
