Godwin's Cabalistic Encyclopedia by David Godwin is the only sourcebook you'll ever need for understanding the basis of Western mysticism: the Cabala. There is no longer any need for myriad books on mysticism, magic, and the occult in order to trace down the basic meanings, Hebrew spellings, and enumerations of the hundreds of terms, words, and names you need to reference as you wind your way through Cabalistic magic and Gematria.
Godwin's Cabalistic Encyclopedia is the most complete correlation of Hebrew and English ideas ever published. Included are such essentials as all of the two-letter root words found in Biblical Hebrew, the astrological signs, every demon, angel, power, sephira, path, and plane on the Tree of Life, and much more. Each attribute and association is fully described and cross-indexed by the Hebrew, English, and numerical forms.
This third revised and enlarged edition features a comprehensive new introduction to the Cabala and the key to Cabalistic numerology: Gematria. The revised format includes hundreds of new illustrations and entries, making Godwin's Cabalistic Encyclopedia more accessible than ever.
Included are many names of God, angels, spirits, correspondences of the paths on the Tree of Life, terms of Freemasonry, the complete text of Aleister Crowley's seminal Cabalistic work Sepher Sephiroth, and more.
This book is a vital reference work for any student of Western mysticism or magic.
