Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of proper nouns and names in Talmudic sages, modern scholar names, and Hebrew and Aramaic technical terms that occur in the book Apocalyptic and Merkavah Mysticism: Second, Revised Edition. The book contains a description of Jewish Merkavah ("Divine Chariot") mysticism, its history, structure, and main thematic features. The term Merkavah mysticism derives from the Hebrew term Maʿaseh Merkavah ("The Work of the Divine Chariot"), which usually means the mystical explication of the first chapter of the Book of Ezekiel. The book has two parts. The first contains an analysis of the major features of the Merkavah tradition. In the second, a detailed description is given of all the known Hekhalot writings.

Keywords: Book of Ezekiel; Divine Chariot; Hekhalot writings; Jewish Merkavah mysticism; Talmudic sages
