Description: 

Translated from the Hebrew by Jonathan Chipman
"There are two main aspects to the association between mystical ecstasy and music in the ecstatic Kabbalah: on the one hand, music serves as an anology for the technique giving rise to ecstasy and the ecstatic experience; ont he other, it was an important element of the actual technique of Abulafia."
1. Music as an analogy for ecstasy evoking techniques
2. Music as analogy for prophecy
3. Music as means of attaining prophecy
