Description
Scroll of Secrets (Megillat Setarim) is the hidden Messianic vision of R. Nahman of Bratslav. The Scroll was concealed for two centuries, and was known only to a select individual in each generation. Despite its being written in encoded language, with acronyms and abbreviations, after a clarification and cautious reconstruction of what can be decoded, the reader is presented with an exalted Messianic vision. The book marks a turning point in our knowledge of R. Nahman`s spiritual world, and initiates a renewed discussion of an intriguing Hasidism that excites scholars and broad circles within the Jewish and Israeli publics.
From the series Interpretation and Culture.

Interpretation and Culture – A Series
Edited by: Prof. Avi Sagi

Man`s nature is to interpret. Human beings, as individuals and as members of a society, are constantly engaged in the interpretation of their deeds, their values, their world and entire realm of activity. The act of interpretation is not the exclusive domain of scholars who research culture. Rather, it is first and foremost, common to every person in this world who strives to find meaning in all spheres of his activity. The act of interpretation is one of the distinguishing characteristics of human existence. Man as a creative thinker is not content with action alone. On the contrary, his acts are accompanied by explanation aimed at understanding. The art of interpretation is usually imbedded in the physical act itself. It is not confined to the light of awareness and methodological consciousness.
However, at times interpretation becomes the main focus of study and our attention is diverted from practice to theory. This transition marks the beginning of a new interpretive approach to the study of different areas of human activity by means of deciphering, analysis and description. Such work is carried out by the theoretician and interpretation becomes an independent research discipline.

The series ``Interpretation and Culture`` deals with interpretative instances. The books in the series treat the field of interpretation in various aspects: interpretation of literary, philosophical and theological texts, and interpretation of cultures and societies. Each and every book strives to propose an original, challenging interpretive reading.
