Grözinger, Karl Erich
Handling of holy traditions as a path to mystical unity in the Kitve ha-‘Iyyun
Kurzfassung auf EnglischExcerpt:
The writings from the thirteenth century called by Gershom Scholem the "Writings of the 'lyyun circle" are one of the most intriguing chapters of early kabbalah - this I need not to elaborate on as it is a well known fact to anyone whoever had read these texts or the literature about them. When reading these texts, one gets the impression as if the authors had at hand a box full of terms and phrases into which everybody could just stick his hand and take terms and phrases out of it in order to arrange them according to his own taste, disregarding the meaning they have in the writings of his fellow kabbalists. The result was, that we now have before us a large number of varying mosaic pictures in which we detect again and again the same mosaic pebbles, however composed differently.
