Chapter Summary

This index presents the list of names, terms and concepts of Abraham Abulafia and Christianity. Abraham Abulafia is one of the most enigmatic and intriguing- often vexing-figures in the history of Jewish mysticism. Scholars have pursued the difficult task of seeking to understand Abulafia's mystical aims, the methods employed in achieving them and the extent to which Abulafia's kabbalah differed from the so-called theosophic kabbalah, from which he distanced himself. Abulafia's messianic self-conception and colorful life story have also attracted considerable attention.

Keywords:Abraham Abulafia; Christianity; theosophic kabbalah
