Chapter Summary

This chapter offers an analysis of P. Vulliauds intellectual attitude towards Jewish kabbalah. It briefly sketches his biography and cultural background and attempts to give an outline of his views on Jewish mysticism in general, and of the way it is presented in some of his more important published works. The chapter concentrates on the analysis on what Vulliaud himself perceives as constituting the major, more fundamental kabbalistic textbooks, themes and doctrines, as well as on the motives behind his critical choices. Vulliauds interest in esotericism besides kabbalah, continued to manifest itself after the First World War, when he successively published Joseph de Maistre franc-maon (1926), and Les Rose-Croix lyonnais au XVIIIe sicle (1929), drawing his documentation from archives retrieved, and later offered for sale, by Nourry.
