"The great Polish authority R. Solomon Luria (d. 1574) , who, in a responsum on procedure where the kabbalah differs from the codes (Responsa Rashal [Fuerth, 1768], no. 98) , boldly rejects the kabbalistic ruling and goes on to state that R. Simeon ben Yohai, the traditional author of the Zohar, is not followed in his legal decisions, so that even if he came back to earth, we would be obliged to ignore his rulings. " ('The Responsa of Rabbi Joseph Hayyim of Baghdad', Perspectives on Jews and Judaism: Essays in Honor of Wolfe Kelman; 1978) . Solomon b. Jehiel Luria (Maharshal or Rashal) : "Rabbi and author; born in Brest-Litovsk, Lithuania, 1510; died at Lublin Nov. 7, 1573. When still a youth his parents sent him to Posen, where he studied under the guidance of his grandfather Rabbi Isaac Klauberia. He left Posen in 1535, owing to an extensive fire which destroyed his grandfather's property. On his return to his native place he assiduously continued his studies. Here he married Lipka, daughter of Rabbi Kalonymus. After some time he was elected rabbi of Brest, and established a yeshibah there. About 1550 he received the appointment of rabbi and head of the yeshibah at Ostrog, and in 1555 he moved to Lublin, where he became head of the famous yeshibah.
