Eitz Chaim from R. Chaim Vital...

Is there a luach hatikun of sorts for Eitz Chaim (from R. Chaim Vital)? The first print reads different than the prints that were published in the later years. It seems that corrections were made. What are they based on?

I'm finding that no luach hatikun was ever written. The corrections came from someone named ' ... Does anyone know who he is and when he lived? From what I've seen so far, the Rebbeim held of his corrections. Although I've never seen any talk about him.

An inside note: In some places corrections were put in the text in order to resolve the problem of clear and blatant contradictions. It's not just a word here, a word there. The corrections are very relevant that they change the actual meaning and the implications drawn from the text.

I find it hard to believe it is the Mabit, based on the years.

That's true. The Mabit learned alongside Yosef Karo and the Ramak. Eitz Chaim was only printed after the passing of R. Chaim Vital, when it was reviewed by R. Meir Poprush. There were several prints that were published even before those corrections were inserted into the print. It's hard to imagine that the Mabit came along after all those years and made corrections. It seems like a whole different time period.

In the meantime I'm looking for anything I can find on the "Mabit" or "R. Moshe Matrani", and so far I haven't seen anything about him working on Eitz Chaim.

The Mabit could not "come along after all those years", as he passed away 8 years after the Ari - long before the printing (and final compiling) of the Eitz Chaim (though there were different editions by RCV).

Then I guess we're back to square 1: who made the edits on the Kisvei Ha'Ari that we have in front of us, and why is he a bar samcho?
