Christian Cabbalah Movement in Renaissance England and Its Influence on William Shakespeare
2009 0-7734-4818-7
This work demonstrates not only how the general situation in Europe, particularly in the Elizabethan government, offered a favorable context for the development of Christian Cabbalah in England, but how the movement informed the work of Shakespeare. It is unique to existing texts in that it stresses the importance of the Christian Cabbalah by singling it out as a distinctive intellectual movement, rather than unite it with other philosophical trends such as Neo-platonism, Jewish Cabbalah, or Rosecrucian theory. This book contains nine black and white photographs.
