The Rainbow, The Ladder and the Countenances
The Many Faces of Jewish Mysticism
This volume is the third of four Hebrew monographs composed by Michael Schneider in which he traced traditions from antiquity through medieval Kabbalah. This volume explores theophany and apotheosis in three chapters regarding the imagery of the rainbow, Jacob's ladder, and the many faces of God. The volume offers another contribution to his research on the high priest, as traditions of the confluence between the divine Anthropos and human form meet in texts from various periods and are composed in various languages.
