Kabbala und die Literatur der Romantik
Kabbala and the Literature of Romanticism. Between magic and trope.

Zwischen Magie und Trope

Edited by: Eveline Goodman-Thau, Gert Mattenklott,  and Christoph Schulte
In German Romantic literature, Jewish mysticism was also a source of inspiration for Christian authors such as Novalis, F. Schlegel, Brentano, Arnim, and E.T.A. Hoffmann. Whereas for Romantic theologians and philosophers the Kabbala represented the primal religious doctrine of humanity and a bridge between Rabbinic tradition and Christianity, the literary fraternity saw in it both an esoteric Jewish doctrine of the arcane and the magical and a trope for the mysterious power of language and writing to transcend rationalism and conscious authorial intention.
