What is redemption and will it ever come? The elementary crisis of the 21st century has endowed the quest for the Messiah with a new sense of virulence. However the messianic promise opens up a wide range of conflicting priorities between religion and politics, Jewish law and the vision of the "End of Days."
The lectures explore contemporary aspects of Messianism and focus on the relation between messianic manifestation and mystic vision.
