This book deals with the “Book of Splendor” (Sefer ha-Zohar), the greatest achievement of Kabbalah and one of the most influential sources of Western mysticism.

The author delves into the issues of the messianic elements of the Zohar, the way it was written, and its relationship to Christianity, Gnosticism, and Talmudic literature.
