His picaresque life is recounted by Alexandr Kraushar. The editors A Note for the General Reader and his annotations to Kraushars text explore the sources, and the reasons for the disappearance, of the Sabbatain heresy. These observations are reflected against aspects of early 20th Century European history. Also explored are affinities to the tenets of Sabbatian theology found in lines of T.S.Eliots Four Quartets and in the role of the Old Bolsheviks in Stalins Purge Trials.
