Hasidism as Mysticism

Quietistic Elements in Eighteenth Century Hasidic Thought

תקציר
Offered here for the first time in English translation, Hasidism as Mysticism is a classic in its field. Using the tools of phenomenology, Rivka Schatz Uffenheimer places Hasidism squarely in the context of religious studies. Hasidism's theoretical texts have been largely ignored by historians of the movement, but Shatz Uffenheimer analyzes these materials fully, disclosing the mystical, quietistic tendencies that existed alongside Hasidism's more activist popular elements. The author carefully reviewed this translation of her work: it includes a revised introduction with new material, two new chapters, and an appendix containing a translation, history and literary analysis of one of the few extant texts attributed to the Ba'al Shem Tov.
