Hekhalot Translations by Jim Davila
Jim Davila reports that his translation of an eclectic text of the macroforms Hekhalot Rabbati, Sar Torah, Hekhalot Zutarti, Ma'aseh Merkavah, and Merkavah Rabbah as well as some microforms and the Geniza Fragments will be published by Brill. His current title is Hekhalot Literature in Translation: Major Texts of Merkavah Mysticism. Congrats Jim! I will be looking out for this one! Maybe I will get back to my old series of "Daily Hekhalot."
I have a Ph.D. in Religion from Columbia University. I am currently a visiting instructor in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at the University of Mississippi. My research focuses on the New Testament and emergent Christian interactions with ancient Judaism in their Greco-Roman and ancient Near Eastern environments.
