Kabbalah Links Page

Once you have followed several of these links and appreciate the extent of the written material on Kabbalah, your eyes will begin to glaze over and you may find yourself slumped at your terminal in a catatonic stupor of information overload. This is the beginning of that mystical state described in this paraphrase of W.B. Yeats' Long-Legged Fly:

rembrandt"That the Great Work may not fail,
And it's secrets be lost,
Switch on the modem, log on the Net,
Whatever the cost;
The Kabbalist is wired,
Where the grimoires are spread,
His eyes fixed on nothing,
A hand under his head.
Like a long-legged fly upon the stream
His mind moves on silence"

Right: Rembrandt's Catatonic Kabbalist with Laptop Computer


Hermetic Kabbalah & Hermetica

Twilit Grotto of Joseph and Candy Peterson
Archives of Western Esoterica. Dee, Bruno, Trithemius, Iamblichus etc etc - the Petersons will certainly get their reward in my heaven. I cannot recommend this site too highly. See also their compendious Zoroastrian material.
M. Alan Kazlev's Kabbalah Site
An amazing site. Excellent for the Kabbalah alone. Follow some of the sneaky little links to related subjects and the entire mystical corpus of the world unfolds like a semtex-powered pop-up book. Recommended.
Donald Tyson's Supernatural World
Editor of the recent edition of Agrippa's Three Books of Occult Philosophy, he now has a site with a large amount of original and well-informed content. Recommeded.

Christian Kabbalah
Essay on Renaissance Christian Kabbalah
Hermetic Alchemical Order of the QBLH

An amazing site. Excellent for the Kabbalah alone. Follow some of the sneaky little links to related subjects and suddenly the entire mystical corpus of the world unfolds like an exploding pop-up book. Recommended.

Religious Studies 463: Jewish Mysticism

Extraordinary. Like the celoecanth, ancient traditions of talisman construction are still alive and well.

An Internet Guide to Chabad Literature
Aesch Mezareph
A 16th. century text on alchemy, written by someone with a background in Kabbalah.


A Summary of Pythagorean Theology
by John Opsopaus. There are some exceptionally fine articles on the WWW these days, and this is one of them. The similarity between some aspects of the theosophic structure of Kabbalah and some aspects of Pythagoreanism have been observed since the Renaissance (e.g. Johann Reuchlin). What this means is unclear, but anyone who is interested in the foundations of Kabbalah is certain to be intrigued.
The Civilisation of the Renaissance in Italy by Jacob Burckhardt. Massive reference work on the period - important for the beginnings of Christian and Hermetic Kabbalah.
New Advent Catholic Supersite: Fathers of the Church
This site contains a superb collection of patristic literature - that is, very early works by Roman and Greek Christian fathers which is of outstanding historical importance for understanding the relationship of early Christianity to Gnosticism and Neoplatonism - both of which relate to Kabbalah.
The Gnostic Society Library
Highly recommended. A very large collection of essential gnostic source material (and much besides).
Decline of the Library of Alexandria
Ever wondered why people queued-up to set fire to this most-famous of all libraries? This great little essay is the history of its glacially slow combustion.
Biblioteca Arcana
This is one of my favourite WWW sites - a collection of essays on Graeco-Roman magic and traditions, along with many translations of otherwise hard-to-find material.
The Online Medieval and Classical Library (DL SunSITE)
Perseus Project Homepage
This is a major collection of classical (Graeco-Roman) literature. I still haven't forgiven them for not having "De Mysteriis" by Iamblichus. Humph.   [Aside, stage whisper: Ha! But the Petersons now have Iamblichus. Double Ha!]
Sacred and Religious Texts
Your favourite version of the Truth ... online.
The Alchemy WWW Site and Virtual Library
The definitive online resource for alchemy.
Jewish Roots of Eastern Christian Mysticism
An academic site with some wonderfully arcane content. The section on Jewish, Christian and Pagan magic is particularly good.
Pages devoted to the Lilith myth.


General Occult Links

Lucky Mojo
Fascinating site run by Catherine & Tyagi Nagasiva Yronwode. Tyagi is one of the great eclectics, and his essays are worth reading for their antinomian perspectives.
Anathema Books: Occult Books and Occult Resources
I don't normally carry links to commercial sites, but I made this an exception.


Margo's Magical Letter Page
Sound Symbolism, Phonosemantics, Phonetic Symbolism, Mimologics, Iconism, Cratylus, Ideophones, Synaesthesia, The Alphabet, The Word.
Kabbalists have always deconstructed language in curious ways. A site that explores some of the less well-known attributes of language and sound. Recommended.
The Ted Hughes Homepage
I hadn't realised that UK Poet Laureate Ted Hughes (now deceased) had been strongly influenced by hermeticism, platonism and kabbalah. Dr. Ann Skea has been investigating many of these influences in his poetry. Of particular interest is her essay Poetry and Magic, "... an analysis of Birthday Letters, and Ted Hughes' use of Tarot and Cabbala in this sequence".
Principia Cybernetica Web
Principia Cybernetica tries to tackle age-old philosophical questions with the help of the most recent cybernetic theories and technologies. I find it difficult to express the extent of my admiration for this site. A superbly hyperlinked exposition with 18,000 documents pointed to by 10,000 links. And it is literate, clear, and enjoyable.
Integral World
Hermetic Kabbalah provides what is very much a holistic worldview. Ken Wilber is an influential modern exponent of what one might call "the perennial philosophy", as represented throughout history by individuals such as the Neoplatonist philosopher Plotinus. Wilber's Sex, Ecology, Spirituality is a modern exposition of this viewpoint, and there is much to admire in it.
The Meditation Site
An introduction to practical meditation techniques from all over the world. What a good idea!
Religious Movements Homepage: Qabalah/Kabbalah
Observe how Kabbalah is located in the general religious firmament.
The Metaphysics Research Lab Home Page
Motivated by similar concerns as historical Kabbalists, this is what Kabbalah turns into when you give it to academics. Hardcore modern metaphysics. Don't tell them about this link - they'd be mortified!
The Dan Clore Necronomicon Page
Was Abdul Alhazred influenced by Merkhabah mysticism? You won't find the answer here.
Project Gutenberg Master Index
This is the best source for online copies of out-of-copyright literature. Did you know all of William Blake was online? This is great when you want to search for every instance of Goolganooza (which I do each morning after my press-ups).
Kronos Quartet: The Dream and Prayers of Isaac the Blind
What this has to do with the "Father of Kabbalah" is left as an exercise to the reader.
