Moses Cordevero, Pardes Rimmonim, 16, 34a


The [attribute of] Malkhut is called ‘atarah. She is not called this except when she ascends to Keter, and there she is a crown on the head of her husband, the glorious crown (‘ateret tif’eret). Thus she is a crown on the head of every righteous person, and she is the crown on the Torah scroll.
