Cordovero, Moses

Cordovero, Moses (1552–70). Kabbalistic scholar. Cordovero was a disciple of Joseph Caro and the teacher of Isaac Luria. He attempted to construct a speculative kabbalistic system based on traditional medieval philosophy and the teachings of the Zohar. His two great systematic works were Pardes Rimmonim (‘Orchard of Pomegranates’) and Ellimah Rabbati; and he also wrote a long commentary on the Zohar, Or Yaqar (Precious Light). His Tomer Devorah (Palm Tree of Deborah) is a popular work showing how Kabbalah is, in practice, a way leading to God.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
