Sabbatian Heresy: Writings on Mysticism, Messianism, and the Origins of Jewish Modernity
Edited by Pawel Maciejko
The combination of eye-opening historical sources and Maciejko’s learned com mentary make this a perfect volume for undergraduate and graduate courses on religious studies, messianic movements, Jewish history, and the histories of both East Central Europe and of the Ottoman Empire. This is a lively and engaging study that few readers will be able to put down.
