The Sefer Yetsirah (the Book of Creation ) is a core text of the early kabbalah, yet scholars have struggled to establish even the most basic facts about the work. This project attempts to discover the ways in which diagrams accompanying the text and its commentaries show trends in the development of the kabbalistic tradition as a whole. Marla Segol is the Fannie Kestenbaum Paull Professor of Jewish Studies The Institute of Jewish Thought and Heritage at SUNY University at Buffalo.

This book provides a systematic analysis of the innovations that occurred in the display of royal power during John IIs four years in English captivity. Neil Murphy shows how the French kings competition with Edward III led to a revolution in the presentation of the royal image, manifesting through developments to the sacral character of the French monarchy, lavish displays of gift giving, and the use of courtly display. Showing that the Hundred Years War was not just fought on the battlefields of France, this book unravels how the war played out daily in the competition for status between Edward III and John II. Neil Murphy is Senior Lecturer in History at Northumbria University, UK.
