Concealed for two centuries and known only to a select individual in each generation, the Scroll of Secrets is the hidden Messianic vision of R. Nachman of Breslav. Despite its being written in an encoded language, with acronyms and abbreviations, after a clarification and cautious reconstruction of what can be decoded, the author has prepared a volume that presents the reader with an exalted Messianic vision. The book marks a turning point in our understanding of R. Nachman's spiritual world and initiates a renewed discussion of an intriguing Hasidism that excites scholars and broad circles within the Jewish and Israeli publics. The reader is presented with a sublime and enticing vision of the eschatological End of Days that contains song and prayer, Torah, melodies, longings, and love and compassion for every man.
Dr. Zvi Mark is a Senior Lecturer at Bar-Ilan University and a Research Fellow of Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem. His previous publications include Mysticism and Madness; The Religious Thought of Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav (Continuum, London and New York, 2009) and numerous articles examining the esoterica of Bratslav Hasidism.
