Críticas: 'We thought we had understood the Zohar but Tishby showed us the mystical level, and we never read the Zohar the same way again... Now the splendour of the Book of Splendour is available for all to see. The masterful work of Tishby has been complemented by a masterful translation by Goldstein... This work is a solid step into a substantial and new view of what religion is about; it should be a part of every scholarly library, in religion as well as in Jewish studies.' David R. Blumenthal, Journal of the American Academy of Religion '... extensive and erudite introductions to every section of this magnum opus ... [Tishby's] introductory essays, as well as his annotations to the passages in these three volumes, demonstrate his vast erudition and comprehension of Kabbalistic theology and literature and thereby introduce the reader into the realms of Kabbalah hitherto inaccessible except to a coterie of scholars. The comprehensive bibliography, select glossary, an index of references to the Zohar, as well as an index of Scriptural references to the texts of this anthology, enhance our appreciation of this tour de force which deserves to adorn the bookshelf of the intelligent layman and the serious student.' S. B. Leperer, Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies 'Excellent English translation ... We are presented not only with the best available English translation of large sections of the Zohar but with an extensive, informed running commentary ... a brilliant introduction that situates the Zohar in its historical and theological context... with an extensive, informed running commentary that for the first time really makes the arcane, esoteric, Zoharic text available. In addition Tishby has provided an excellent introduction ... Every library of any size and quality should add this work to its collection.' S. P. Katz, Choice 'In many ways the crowning achievement of the Littman Library.' Samuel H. Dresner, Conservative Judaism 'An indispensable guide ... stylishly and accurately translated ... The bewildering diversity of the Zoharic literature is made manageable by the arrangement of the most important passages as an anthology under subject headings, while the lucid notes and introductions to each section by Isaiah Tishby throw light on even the most obscure passages.' Hyam Maccoby, European Judaism 'An elegant English translation ... [Tishby's] work on Jewish mysticism opened up new paths and helped to establish it as a focus of scholarship.' Hyam Maccoby, The Independent (from his obituary of Tishby) 'This superb addition to the Littman Library of Jewish Civilization comes already garlanded with awards ... These three volumes deserve, and demand, serious and committed study, equal to the enormous dedication and devotion that went into their production. We must be grateful to all concerned in opening this mysterious Jewish world to a wider audience.' Jonathan Magonet, Jewish Chronicle 'Makes possible, for the English-speaking reader, the study of a broad selection of texts from the Zohar thematically arranged and set in the context of a systematic exploration of their conceptual background. It is a work greatly to be welcomed ... there has long been a need for such a work... We should be grateful to David Goldstein for his decade of labour of love and to Louis Littman and the Littman Library for having the courage and commitment to support such a task ... each passage is well-footnoted, the great achievement of this project being to provide a guide for the uninitiated to the rich symbolism and metaphoric reference of the text ... There is something immensely rich and fertile about the text and texture of the work which has always been of broad appeal... David Goldstein's translation reads beautifully. Fortunately, he has added additional explanations, when necessary, to the notes ... There can be no doubt that The Wisdom of the Zohar affords the English-speaking reader a far deeper entry into the subject than was previously available... This translation ... must place him among the best translators of our time ... The Wisdom of the Zohar is therefore evidence that [Louis Littman's] vision of a Library of Jewish Civilization of a standard of excellence will not be forsaken.' Jonathan Wittenberg, Jewish Quarterly 'For over thirty years, Isaiah Tishby's study of the Zohar has been hailed as a classic, a landmark in modern Hebrew letters. Beautifully written and deeply learned, it has opened the recondite world of the Zohar to more than a generation of Hebrew readers. Thus, the appearance of the long-awaited English translation is a cause for celebration ... its mysterious power remains largely intact ... The Zohar ... is the richest, most imaginative work in the annals of Jewish mysticism ... Tishby's selection of primary sources is exemplary, and the commentaries to them, lucid ... the unusually fine, exacting translation ... the English reader remains in Goldstein's debt. Excellent indices have been provided, as well as an updated bibliography... essential reading for anyone seeking to plumb critically the depths of the Jewish mystical tradition ... this is a classic about a classic.' Elliott Ginsburg, Journal of Religion 'Its three-volume English translation now, for the first time, puts the Zohar truly at the disposal of students coming from other disciplines concerned with religious mysticism who appreciate the importance of treating the Jewish material seriously... it is a monumental achievement ... Goldstein's sensitive English version is a great convenience ... the service to scholarship of the Littman Library in making it available.' Raphael Loewe, L'Eylah 'La Littman Library of Jewish Civilization ajoute a sa panoplie d'etudes juives un des classiques des recherches modernes sur la mystique ... sera ... un element indispensable a la bibliographie de tout etudiant de la mystique ... la tradition anglaise, aussi erudite qu'elegante ... cette serie prestigieuse.' Paul Fenton, Revue des Aetudes Juives 'An essential aid for understanding the text of the Zohar, and Goldstein, the Littman Library ... have done us a great service in making it available in English translation ... any library which claims to cover Judaism and mysticism will have to have a copy of this book.' A. P. Hayman
