    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The author reconstructs the adventurous life of the Kabbalist Abraham Cohen de Herrera (d. 1635) in the context of his mystic works. Herrera wrote a synthesis between Christian-oriented Renaissance philosophy, humanistic educational tradition and the kabbalistic ideas of Isaac Luria. His biography is exemplary for the importance of Jewish families, who previously had undergone forced baptism in Spain, in the economic and political structures of the major European powers in the early Baroque period.
