<<A most attractive wide-margined copy.>> One of the most important, classical Kabbalistic texts. The Tikunei HaZohar is divided into seventy chapters, or “Tikunim” (plus an additional eleven tikunim from a different manuscript, ff. 136-46). Each tikun expounds upon an interpretation of the word “Bereishith,” conforming to the “Seventy Aspects of the Torah.” The expositions in the book digress widely and often focus upon matters not included in the main body of the Zohar.
