A World Hidden in the Dimensions of Time
The Theory of Redemption in the Writings of the Vilna Gaon: Its Sources and Influence on Later Generations
Raphael Shuchat

The Vilna Gaon's writings are all commentaries, thus making it difficult to assess his views on the central issues of Judaism. Now, for the first time, one of the more controversial issues in the Gaon's writings has been decoded: his views on the redemption and the Land of Israel. The book also recapitulates the main arguments of historians regarding the Aliyah of the Gaon's students in 1808, and goes on to discuss his ideas concerning the Land of Israel, the redemption, the book Kol haTor, attributed to one of the Gaon's students, and the influence of the Gaon's theory of redemption on the writings of Rabbi A.I. Kook.This book will have a pro-found impact on how we view the Gaon and his writings.
