About this title


How do philosophical theories influence the reading of the Bible? How did the transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance alter the views of God, miracles, prophecy, creation, and evil? This book explores these questions in detail through the work of Isaac Abravanel (1437-1508), a great Jewish statesman, philosopher, and biblical interpreter who embodied the fundamental paradigm shift from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. This book also serves as an invaluable reference guide to such medieval Jewish philosophers as Saadia, Maimonides, and Gersonides, as well as some of their Muslim counterparts such as Averroes, Avicenna, and al-Ghazali, in most of the fundamental issues of philosophy and biblical interpretation.
