Donnolo does not attempt to narrow this down any further, but what he says is significant, particularly as a means of understanding the way in which he viewed Sefer Yesira: "It is written in the Book of Genesis which the Holy One—blessed be He—transmitted to our father Abraham and to Moses our Master on Mount Sinai: God said: "Let there be the light" [Gen. 1:3] ..."

In Judaism, Kabbalah means literally "what has been handed down", i.e. Jewish biblical commentaries emphasize that the imagery of the merkabah is not meant to be taken literally; rather the chariot and its accompanying angels are analogies for the various ways that God reveals himself in this world.

Although he consistently, throughout the text, emends and reformulates Sefer Yesira according to the principles of Hippocratic-Galenic medicine and Ptolemaic astrology, Donnolo's criticism does not go so far as to deny the veracity of Sefer Yesira and, more specifically, the elements which, while not true in relation to the empirical world, are certainly valid in relation to the metaphysical world. He has published widely on Jewish Philosophy and Kabbalah, including Renaissance and Rebirth: Reincarnation in Early Modern Italian Kabbalah (Brill, 2009).
