The first chapter provides an overview of some general methodological questions regarding the Zohar's structure and archaeology. The author argues that schools of Zohar interpretation divide, ideologically, between scholastic approaches and approaches based on mystical revelation and transmission. These two points of origin reflect two views of the kabbalistic experience.

Keywords: methodological questions; Zohar; archaeology; kabbalistic experience
