“My teacher Pythagoras, the father of philosophy, did nevertheless not receive those teachings from the Greeks, but rather received them from the Jews. [...] and he himself was the first to convert the name Kabbalah, unknown to the Greeks, to the Greek name philosophy.”

--Johannes Reuchlin (1455-1522), a German humanist, political counselor to the Chancellor, a classics scholar and an expert in the ancient languages and traditions.
