A major, fundamental Kabbalistic text on the Sefirot by R. Yosef Gikatilla (1248 – c.1325). The work defines, explains and analyzes the ten Sefirot, relying heavily on the Zohar, but also containing many original departures from it. It was described by the Arizal as 'a key to understanding the mystical studies.' This edition is significant for its inclusion of the commentary of the kabbalist and astronomer R. Matthias b. Solomon Delacrut.
