Summary expansion
  • Ascensions on high took many forms in Jewish mysticism and they permeated most of its history from its inception until Hasidism. Surveys the various categories, with an emphasis on the architectural pictures of the ascent, like the resort to images of pillars, lines, and ladders. Investigates the specific issue of the pillar in Jewish mysticism by comparing it to the archaic resort to pillars recurring in rural societies. Idel resorts to the views of two main Romanian scholars of religion, Culianu and Eliade, and analyzes the emergence of the latter's vision of Judaism on the basis of neglected sources
