About this Item

(FT) Small 4to. 11, 339 pages. In Hebrew. Inscribed by Schreiber. SUBJECT(S) : Talmud. Avodah zarah commentaries. OCLC lists 11 copies worldwide. A member of the anti-Maimonides faction, Meiri (1249-1316) was born and lived in Perpignan, Provence, and was part of an important family. He corresponded with Solomon ben Abraham Adret, though Meiri did not completely support restriction of thought and inquiry, as his acquaintance did; he himself had a great interest in secular studies. Meiri was influential due to an "extraordinary literary fecundity" and his ability to synthesize the work of others into a unified Jewish culture. Due to the length of his writings, many works were not published until even the 20th century. Bet ha-behirah took him more than a decade to write, and is an incredibly dense study of the Talmud. He also wrote, among other things, commentaries on Proverbs and Psalms, a commentary on the Haggadah, and Sefer ha-Middot, a guide to conduct. (Ta-Shma, EJ) Ex library in library binding. Pages tanned, good condition. (RAB-30-12) Rab4, heb1. Bookseller Inventory # 20729
