Translated into English from the Latin version of Knorr von Rosenroth, and collated with the original Chaldee and Hebrew text by S. L. MacGregor Mathers. Fourth Impression, 1974. "The Kabbalah, a mystic ebrew doctrine, had its origins in antiquity and has grwon in importance without interruption embracing the Christian world also. It is defined as being the esoteric Jewish doctrine. It is called in Hebrew QBLH (Qabalah), derived from the root QBL (Qibel), meaning to receive. This appellation refers to the custom of handing down the esoteric knowledge by oral transmission. The principal doctrines of the Kabbalah are designed to solve these problems: 1. The nature and attributes of the Supreme Being. 2. The Cosmogony. 3. The creation of man and angels. 4. The nature of the soul. 5. The nature of angels, demons, and elementals. 6. The import of the revealed law. 7. The transcendental symbolism of numerals. 8. The peculiar mysteries contained in the Hebrew letters. 9. The equlibrium of contraries. The three books treat of the gradual development of the creative Deity, and with Him the Creation. After the publication of this work in 1888, Mathers began to organize his esoteric school." from the jacket flap. Price clipped.
