Rabbanim whose opinions I don't know enough about to comment upon. Do
they introduce a plethora of entirely new concepts, the way the Bahir
and the Ari do?

My point was more that the Bahir's worldview is pretty much the
Zohar's. The Zohar (based largely on 2nd-hand description) adds more on
the level of a lot of detail to the Bahir's metaphysics than new concepts.

Tir'u baTov!

Micha Berger             It is harder to eat the day before Yom Kippur
micha at aishdas.org        with the proper intent than to fast on Yom
