Torat ha-Melachim

by Rabbi Geoffrey W. Dennis
"Torah of the Angels." A term for secret meanings to the Torah, the commandments, and/or Jewish Law that are revealed by angels to pious individuals. While most authorities did not recognize angelic revelations as a basis for Jewish observance, many Jews of Medieval Europe and Kabbalists put special stock in such angelic insights (Sefer or Zerua).
