heritage, a mystical form, or secret science, of Judaism that
developed in the late Middle Ages. Kabbalah
was an esoteric method of interpreting the Hebrew Scriptures by way of the
numerical coding of Hebrew letters. Such
a code system was meant to bring out the hidden meaning of each biblical word.
The culminating, classical work of Kabbalah was the Zohar (illumination),
a work containing the record of revelations concerning divine mysteries, as they
were traditionally received from the second-century Rabbi Simeon ben Yohai and
his mystic circle.
