Overview

Devequt: Mystical Intimacy in Medieval Jewish Thought, אדם אפטרמן, דבקות: התקשרות אינטימית בין אדם למקום בהגות היהודית בימי הביניים, by Adam Afterman (Sources and Studies in the Literature of Jewish Mysticism 28; 2011, 384 pages, ISBN 1-933379-23-5, in Hebrew).
This monograph offers a detailed study of the exegetical and experiential understandings of devequt in ancient and medieval Jewish thought, from the Hebrew Bible through the works of Nahmanides. This study explains the connections between the various corpora, linking the moves made between the Hebrew Bible and Rabbinic Literature, and then from the early medieval philosophic and pietistic sources - including Ibn Gabirol, Ibn Paquda, Judah Halevi, and Maimonides – to the early kabbalists. The study is thus both a major contribution to the history of ideas and Jewish mysticism, and a refreshing new vision of the larger framework of Jewish tradition and the interface between philosophic and mystical traditions.
