Description
The possibility of the existence of original theology in modern Hebrew literature has not been systematically researched by contemporary scholars. Hebrew literature was considered to be a product of secular modernity, and consequently devoid of independent, profound theological statements. In contrast to these assumptions, this study aims to reveal the importance of theological foundations and their ensuing developments in four of Agnon`s short stories. The author points to Agnon`s radical outlining of the evil Godly worlds and to his understanding that, as a result of the widespread secularization of Jewish society, the Shekhina, the lowest part in the Sefirotic Godhead, has died.
From the series Thema - Thematological Studies in the Literature of the Jewish People.
