Music and Ecstatic Kabbalah

Author

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
