כוונת המברך למקום המעשה: עיונים בפירוש קבלי לתפילות מהמאה היג

Translated title of the contribution: The intention of prayers in early ecstatic Kabbalah

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This Commentary to the Prayers was written around 1270 in Catalonia, probably in Barcelona. It appears that the anonymous author was part of a small group of ecstatic kabbalists who studied linguistic kabbalah and various commentaries to the Book of Creation which were available in Barcelona. We know at least two members of this circle, Baruch Tugarmi and his student, Abraham Abulafia. In the year 1270, Abulafia visited Barcelona and intensively studied linguistic Kabbalah. The Commentary to the Prayers shows many affinities to Abulafia's Ecstatic Kabbalah. The anonymous author was additionally influenced by another group of early Catalan Kabbalists that lived in Gerona, especially Ezra ben Shlomo, whom he quotes extensively. A partial Latin translation of the Commentary was prepared for Giovanni Pico, Count of Mirandola. -- Publishers website.
