Ma'aseh Breishit (Heb. מעשה בראשית) and Ma'aseh Merkavah (Heb. מעשה מרכבה), literally "work of Creation" and "work of the Chariot", are terms used in the Talmud for the esoteric doctrine of the universe, or for parts of it. Ma'aseh Bereshit (following Genesis 1) comprises the cosmogony of the Talmudic times; Ma'aseh Merkavah (based on the description of the Divine Chariot in Ezekiel 1, and on other prophetic descriptions of divine manifestations, such as Isaiah 6), is concerned with the theosophic views of those times.
