Full critical editions for the entire known corpus of these two kabbalists, active by the second half of the thirteenth century, are represented here. These authors are the main known kabbalists whose interest in the doctrine of evil fills almost all of their interest in Kabbalah, and are the sole speakers on this issue in their time, except for R. Todros Abulafia, before the composition of evil sections in the Zohar. These editions complete the work of Gershom Scholem in the late 20's and early 30's of the previous century in collecting and printing their writings, through a comprehensive collection of Hebrew manuscripts, some were not available to him. Thus, a few new or undiscussed treatises from these two authors is presented. Aside the writings that has their clear authorship, this volume presents appendixes to their writings, who reveal similar writing tendencies and very close affinities to their original works, thus they too should be regarded as their own. The historical and textual prefaces to these writings are to be found in the next volume that discusses the riddle of the Tayʿa. Uninsured shipments are sent at customer's risk.
