The Scandal of Kabbalah is the first book about the origins of a culture war that began in early modern Europe and continues to this day: the debate between kabbalists and their critics on the nature of Judaism and the meaning of religious tradition. Drawing on a range of previously unexamined sources, Dweck told the story of the first criticism of Kabbalah, Ari Nohem, written by Leon of Modena in Venice in 1639.
