Abstract

discusses the tension between competing doctrines of evil presented in the Moses Coredovero’s corpus of writings. It elucidates the function of the model of the dual channels in the divine masculine organ and traces its roots in Joseph of Hamadan’s works. Then, it analyzes the way in which the image of the duality in the divine is contrasted to zoharic and Gikatilia’s images of demonic as “outsiders” (Hitzonim) and shells (qelipot). Through it, I problematize the systematic, rationalist and harmonic character which was attributed by previous scholars to Cordovero’s writing, and emphasize the varieties of contradictions and concrete images operating in his work
