Detail Description

The Kabbalistic interpretation of the Al-mighty's name and cosmic shmitot. Sefer HaTemunah was probably written anonymously in the 13th or 14th century, but it is pseudepigraphly attributed to R. Nehunya ben HaKanah and R. Ishmael, tannaim of the 1st and 2nd centuries. According to Hebrew Manuscripts in the Vatican Library Catalog, the work was composed in the 1270s.
