Le avventure del Cabalista Leon by , Summary

Massimo Melli, Panteista e appassionato di fisica e di logica matematica e ammiratore di Spinoza e di Einstein, è l’autore di questi racconti. Nel 2013 ha pubblicato il libro: Il Talmud di Scicli che si può scaricare gratis dal Web. Il Cabalista Leon, l’eroe di questi racconti, si è basato sulla sapienza della Cabala ebraica per analizzare i maggiori paradossi dello spazio e del tempo. Il risultato è una serie di racconti ironici e umoristici e di saggi geometrici talmente facili da capire, che si potrebbero spiegare anche alla nonna. Per quel che riguarda Dio, la conclusione del Cabalista Leon è: “Dio è la Legge matematica, non la mano che causa o modifica l’evento futuro."

Il Simbolismo dei Tarocchi by P. D. Ouspensky Summary

L'interesse di P. D. Ouspensky per i Tarocchi risale ai primi anni del Novecento, e precede l'incontro con Gurdjieff. Affascinato dalla misteriosa struttura delle carte, nel 1913 pubblica questo breve saggio in cui racconta, con stile poetico e immaginativo, la macchina filosofica rappresentata dai 22 arcani maggiori. Nell'interpretazione del filosofo russo, i tarocchi sono un vero e proprio "libro" di simbolismo ermetico che permette di accedere a un mondo più ampio e profondo.

Sognare e Sapere by Il Rabbino Roberto Colombo Summary

Secondo l’antica tradizione ebraica il sonno è un sessantesimo della morte e, come dopo il trapasso, nell'inattività del torpore l’anima abbandona questo mondo e sale nell’aldilà per fermarsi al cospetto di Dio. È allora che allo spirito, privo finalmente di materia, sono trasmessi a volte i segreti della vita, il senso dell’esistenza e anche il futuro, che l’uomo può tuttavia modificare. Al momento del risveglio, però, non resta in noi altro che il ricordo di una visione spesso insignificante che lentamente dimentichiamo e cancelliamo dalla nostra mente. I segreti dei sogni sono celati nei grandi libri della mistica ebraica, scritti in lingua aramaica e destinati volutamente solo a pochi eletti. Cinquecento anni fa il grande rabbino cabalista di Costantinopoli, Salomone Almulì, dopo pressanti richieste, decise a malincuore di scrivere un libro in ebraico antico per rivelare il senso dei simboli scorti durante il sonno e il modo di cambiare l'eventuale cattiva sorte in essi nascosta. Questo testo in lingua italiana prende spunto proprio dall'opera originale di Salomone Almulì per analizzare e interpretare i sogni secondo il punto di vista dei Maestri del Talmùd, del Midràsh e della mistica ebraica tradizionale.

The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon by Richard Zimler Summary

Just a few years earlier, Jews living in Portugal were dragged to the baptismal font and forced to convert to Christianity. Many of these New Christians persevered in their Jewish prayers and rituals in secret and at great risk; the hidden, arcane practices of the kabbalists, a mystical sect of Jews, continued as well. One such secret Jew was Berekiah Zarco, an intelligent young manuscript illuminator. Inflamed by love and revenge, he searches, in the crucible of the raging pogrom, for the killer of his beloved uncle Abraham, a renowned kabbalist and manuscript illuminator, discovered murdered in a hidden synagogue along with a young girl in dishabille. Risking his life in streets seething with mayhem, Berekiah tracks down answers among Christians, New Christians, Jews, and the fellow kabbalists of his uncle, whose secret language and codes by turns light and obscure the way to the truth he seeks. A marvelous story, a challenging mystery, and a telling tale of the evils of intolerance, The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon both compels and entertains.

Diamondhead by Patrick Robinson Summary

In order to save a life, he must take one... When Navy SEAL Mack Bedford’s fellow officers are brutally killed by Iraqi insurgents using a new, anti-tank Diamondhead missile, Mack recklessly avenges their deaths by gunning down the attackers, resulting in his expulsion from the Navy. He learns that the Diamondheads were sold illegally by infamous French politician Henri Foche. Mack suspects that Foche will triumph in his campaign to become the next French president and fears that his election will promote the spread of international terrorism. In addition, Mack has a gravely ill son whose life can only be saved by an expensive and experimental medical procedure. So when Mack is asked to help assassinate Foche, his hand is forced... His reward: a chance at survival, not just for his son, but for his country. But before Mack can reach his target, a jilted mercenary group warns the Frenchman of the threat, greatly increasing the difficulty of Mack’s solo assassination attempt. Can he succeed – and survive? A non-stop action thrill ride, Diamondhead is perfect for fans of Vince Flynn, Andy McNab and Frederick Forsyth.

Theophilos by Michael O'Brien Summary

St. Luke addressed his Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles to a man named Theophilos. Who was Theophilos? Scripture scholars do not know, making him a fit subject for Michael O’Brien’s vivid imagination. In this fictional narrative, Theophilos is the skeptical but beloved adoptive father of St. Luke. Challenged by the startling account of the “Christos” received in the chronicle from his beloved son Luke and concerned for the newly zealous young man’s fate, Theophilos, a Greek physician and an agnostic, embarks on a search for Luke to bring him home. He is gravely concerned about the deadly illusions Luke has succumbed to regarding the incredible stories surrounding Jesus of Nazareth, a man of contradictions who has caused so much controversy throughout the Roman Empire. Thus begins a long journey that will take Theophilos deep into the war between nations and empires, truth and myth, good and evil, and into unexpected dimensions of his very self. His quest takes the reader into four ancient civilizations - the Greek, Roman, Jewish, and that of Christianity at its birth, where he meets those who knew this man that some believe is the Messiah. Though Theophilos is a man of the past ages, he is as familiar to us as the men of our own times. Schooled in the empiricism of both medicine and philosophy, Theophilos is well suited to speak to our age in which seeing cannot be the basis for faith, but rather hearing the witness of those who have been touched by God and opening ourselves to the possibility of an encounter with the living Christ. This is a story about the mysterious interaction of faith and reason, the psychology of perception, and the power of love over death.

What the Nanny Saw by Fiona Neill Summary

It’s the summer of 2008. For the past decade Nick and Bryony Skinner and their four children have ridden high on the economic boom, but their luck is about to run out. Suddenly, the privileged family finds itself at the center of a financial scandal: their Central London house is besieged by the press, Nick disappears, and Bryony and the children become virtual prisoners in their own home. And Ali, their trusted nanny, watches it all. As the babysitter, she brings a unique insider-outsider perspective to the family, seeing far more than even the family itself is capable of. But when a reporter with a personal connection to the story comes asking her for the inside scoop, will Ali remain loyal to the family who never saw her as anything other than the help? Or will she tell her side? Written with Fiona Neill’s delicious humor and addictive style, What the Nanny Saw is a keenly observed, often comical chronicle of the urban wealthy elite, of parents who are often too busy to notice what is going on under their own noses, of children left to their own devices, and of a young nanny thrown into a role she doesn’t know how to play. It is a morality tale of our time, a tale of betrayal, the corrosive influence of too much money, and why good people sometimes do bad things.

Operette morali by Giacomo Leopardi Summary

Le Operette morali di Giacomo Leopardi a cura di Ludovico Fulci sono un testo per le scuole che sfrutta l’opportunità offerta da Internet di distribuire gran parte di quello che è corredo alle informazioni fondamentali del testo base in nuclei diversi. Si è evitato in tal modo di fornire l’ennesima selezione che all’arbitrarietà dell’operazione, consistente nella scelta dei“passi”da proporre, aggiunge l’equivoco ed implicito messaggio che le Operette siano prose d’arte (se non poesia in prosa) e non un’opera filosofica che alla filosofia introduce nell’unico modo possibile, cioè filosofando.

V.I.T.R.I.O.L. (L'Artigliatore) by Vito Ditaranto Summary

Joshua Tree, uno studioso della Cabala Ebraica, ricerca in una inesplicabile Venezia l’erede a cui trasmettere le sue conoscenze sulla Cabala, ma il suo progetto è ostacolato da un oscuro essere: “L’artigliatore”. Questa misteriosa entità si dimostrerà “materiale” e non solo “spirituale” e, lentamente, ma inesorabilmente diventerà sempre più pressante ed insistente fino a far cadere il protagonista in una paranoia totale. Dopo aver scoperto di essere gravemente malato, Joshua non avrà molto tempo a disposizione per portare a termine il compito che si è prefisso, ovvero trascrivere tutti i suoi segreti e le “formule magiche” che ha imparato a utilizzare in tantissimi anni di studio. In un viaggio tra passato presente e futuro, un antico manoscritto risalente a Jacob Frank, cabalista ebreo di nazionalità polacca nato nel 1726, consigliere del re Augusto III re di Polonia, farà luce sull’intera vicenda, riaccendendo la luce di Prometeo.

The Manuscript Found in Saragossa by Jan Potocki Summary

Alphonse, a young Walloon officer, is travelling to join his regiment in Madrid in 1739. But he soon finds himself mysteriously detained at a highway inn in the strange and varied company of thieves, brigands, cabbalists, noblemen, coquettes and gypsies, whose stories he records over sixty-six days. The resulting manuscript is discovered some forty years later in a sealed casket, from which tales of characters transformed through disguise, magic and illusion, of honour and cowardice, of hauntings and seductions, leap forth to create a vibrant polyphony of human voices. Jan Potocki (1761-1812) used a range of literary styles - gothic, picaresque, adventure, pastoral, erotica - in his novel of stories-within-stories, which, like the Decameron and Tales from the Thousand and One Nights, provides entertainment on an epic scale.

Bee Season by Myla Goldberg Summary

Eliza Naumann, a seemingly unremarkable nine-year-old, expects never to fit into her gifted family: her autodidact father, Saul, absorbed in his study of Jewish mysticism; her brother, Aaron, the vessel of his father's spiritual ambitions; and her brilliant but distant lawyer-mom, Miriam. But when Eliza sweeps her school and district spelling bees in quick succession, Saul takes it as a sign that she is destined for greatness. In this altered reality, Saul inducts her into his hallowed study and lavishes upon her the attention previously reserved for Aaron, who in his displacement embarks upon a lone quest for spiritual fulfillment. When Miriam's secret life triggers a familial explosion, it is Eliza who must order the chaos. Myla Goldberg's keen eye for detail brings Eliza's journey to three-dimensional life. As she rises from classroom obscurity to the blinding lights and outsized expectations of the National Bee, Eliza's small pains and large joys are finely wrought and deeply felt. Not merely a coming-of-age story, Goldberg's first novel delicately examines the unraveling fabric of one family. The outcome of this tale is as startling and unconventional as her prose, which wields its metaphors sharply and rings with maturity. The work of a lyrical and gifted storyteller, Bee Season marks the arrival of an extraordinarily talented new writer.

The Order of Minims in Seventeenth-Century France by P.J.S. Whitmore Summary

Thinking of the text from the Dies frae (S. Matthew, XXV, 40). It is also probable that this other Saint Francis, partly out of admiration for his illustrious compatriot of Assisi and partly from a compelling urge to be superlative in all things, chose the title in opposition to the Franciscans, the Fratres Minori, l who had previously adopted this style taken from Saint Matthew, XXIII, 8. The title "Minim" was confirmed in these words" ... eosque Eremitos Ordinis Minimorum Fratrum Eremitarum F. Francesci de Paula in posterum nuncupari," taken from the Papal Bull, Meritis religiosae vitae, of 26 February, 1493. The earliest reference to the Order in France is in a fragment preserved in the Bibliotheque de l' Arsenal called, La regle et vie de Frere Franfois, pauvre et humble hermite de Paule, laquelle donne a tous ses 2 freres voulant entrer et vivre en son ordre. The dating of this manuscript should be accepted with considerable reserve; it bears a clearly legible "1474," although it seems most unlikely that any reference to an Order occurred before the Bull of 1493 or that any Rule appeared in French before the Founder's visit to Louis XI in 1483. 3 The fame of Francis and his reputation as a "guerisseur" had reached the French court where Louis XI was sick and dying; the King summoned him to the chateau of Le Plessis-Ies-Tours, but it required the intervention of the Pope to make the hermit undertake the journey.

Literary Translation and Cultural Mediators in 'Peripheral' Cultures by Diana Roig-Sanz,Reine Meylaerts Summary

This book sets the grounds for a new approach exploring cultural mediators as key figures in literary and cultural history. It proposes an innovative conceptual and methodological understanding of the figure of the cultural mediator, defined as a cultural actor active across linguistic, cultural and geographical borders, occupying strategic positions within large networks and being the carrier of cultural transfer. Many studies on translation and cultural mediation privileged the major metropolis of Paris, London, and New York as centres of cultural production and translation. However, other cities and megacities that are not global centres of culture also feature vibrant translation scenes. This book abandons the focus on ‘innovative’ centres and ‘imitative’ peripheries and follows processes of cultural exchange as they develop. Thus, it analyses the role of cultural mediators as customs officers or smugglers (or both in different proportions) in so-called ‘peripheral’ cultures and offers insights into an under-analysed body of actors and institutions promoting intercultural transfer in often multilingual and less studied venues such as Trieste, Tel Aviv, Buenos Aires, Lima, Lahore, or Cape Town.

Borges Beyond the Visible by Max Ubelaker Andrade Summary

Borges Beyond the Visible presents radically new readings of some of Jorge Luis Borges’s most celebrated stories. Max Ubelaker Andrade shows how Borges employed intertextual puzzles to transform his personal experiences with blindness, sexuality, and suicide while allowing readers to sense the transformative power of their own literary imaginations. In readings of “Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius,” “El Aleph,” and “El Zahir,” Ubelaker Andrade argues that Borges, considering his own impending blindness, borrowed from Islam’s prohibitions on visual representation to create a “literary theology”—a religion focused on the contradictions of literary existence and the unstable complexities of a visual world perceived without everyday sight. Embracing these contradictions allowed Borges to transform his relationships with sex, sexuality, and family in multilayered stories such as “Emma Zunz,” “La intrusa,” and “El jardín de senderos que se bifurcan.” Yet these liberating transformations, sometimes offered to the reader as a paradoxical “gift of death,” are complicated by “La salvación por las obras,” a story built around Borges’s relationship with a suicidal reader and the woman to whom they were both connected. The epilogue presents “Místicos del Islam,” an unpublished essay draft by Borges, as a key source of insight into an irreverent, iconoclastic writing practice based on a profound faith in fiction. Compelling and clear, Borges Beyond the Visible is a revelatory examination of the work of one of the most influential authors of the twentieth century. It opens up exciting areas of inquiry for scholars, students, and readers of Borges.
