Link to online resources for the study of Jewish magic


Rebecca Macy Lesses** at Mystical Politics has posted some online resources for the study of Jewish magic and information about her course on Jewish magic this semester. Of particular interest to me was that Joshua Trachtenberg's "Jewish Magic and Superstition" is now available online (See second link above).

** - Author of  Ritual Practices to Gain Power: Angels, Incantations, and Revelation in Early Jewish Mysticis. Probably the most 'practically focused' of sources in English on how Merkavah and Hechalot rituals work.
