Summary "Anti-Semitism and Kabbalah are ever present in today's world as they were in early modern Europe. 72 in His Name shows how four leading Reformation figures-Johann Reuchlin, Martin Luther, Jean Thenaud, and Philipp Wolff-reacted to elements of the Kabbalah, especially the divine names of Seventy-Two Angels. The book describes the various and varying interactions of Reuchlin, Luther, Thenaud, and Wolff with the Jews. Long shadows are cast into the turmoils of our day"-- Provided by publisher
