    Messianism was intricately linked with medieval mysticism as well. Isaac Luria ‘s theology focused on tikkun olam, the healing of the world, which, when completed, would bring the Messiah. According to Gershom Scholem, the spread of Lurianic kabbalah paved the way for the most tragic messianic movement in Jewish history: the 17th-century. Exploring the interplay of Jewish messianism and mysticism from the twelfth through the eighteenth centuries, a leading scholar of Jewish thought provides new perspectives in this controversial book.

MESSIANISM: JEWISH MESSIANISM. The term messianism denotes a movement, or a system of beliefs and ideas, centered on the expectation of the advent of a messiah (derived from the Hebrew mashia ḥ, "the anointed one").The Hebrew verb masha ḥ means to anoint objects or persons with oil for ordinary secular purposes as well as for sacral purposes.

In due course the nominative form came to .Eschatology - Eschatology - Messianism: The term messiah, or mashiah (Hebrew: "anointed"), has been applied to a variety of “redeemers,” and many movements with an eschatological or utopian-revolutionary message have been termed messianic. Although messianic movements have occurred throughout the world, they seem to be especially characteristic of the Jewish and Christian traditions.Magical messianism is only one of the Jewish messianic tendencies that Idel discusses in this book, but it is important because it demonstrates once again an aspect of his book's larger thesis, that one cannot easily separate mysticism, messianism, and for that matter magic in the Kabbalistic tradition.
