The idea of transplanting into English De arte cabalistica of Johannes Reuchlin is, no doubt, an exciting one. Reuchlin's work, originally published in 1517, was one of the first Latin books on the Jewish kabbalah written by a Christian. Since the writing of De verbo mirifico some twenty years earlier, Reuchlin had made considerable progress in mastering kabbalistic sources and utlized his expanded knowledge to produce an informed and sympathetic elucidation of his subject.
