Der weibliche Messias - König David im Bild der Schechina in der kabbalistischen Literatur

Ruth Kara-Ivanov Kaniel
The Feminine Messiah
King David in the Image
of the Shekhinah

in Kabbalistic Literature

In The Feminine Messiah:
King David in the Image of the Shekhina in Kabbalistic Literature
Ruth Kara-Ivanov Kaniel presents an in-depth study focusing
on the centrality of the figure of King David in Jewish culture
and mystical literature.
King David is one of the most colorful,
complex, and controversial personalities
in Jewish lore. While numerous studies
have focused on David's centrality
to biblical literature and late antiquity,
to date no comprehensive scholarly attempt
has been made to investigate his image in
Jewish kabbalistic literature.
This innovative study also contributes
to the understanding of the connection
between the mystical and psychoanalytic
perception of the self, as well as illuminating issues of gender fluidity,
identity, and sexuality in medieval kabbalistic literature.
