Sufism and Kabbalah: Mysticism in Islam and Judaism with David Mendelsohn
Both Judaism and Islam place an emphasis upon a sacred revealed text as a central element in the mystical experience. We have Kabbalah and Zohar and Islam has Sufism. Join to consider the powerful place of these mystical imaginations in each religious tradition. What are the significant historical and theological connections between the two mystical traditions? Why were they distrusted by official authorities? How is Shabtai Zvi a clue as to what mysticism is trying to achieve?
