Commentary on Song of Songs
Rabbi Levi Ben Gershom (Gersonides, 1288-1344), one of medieval Judaism's most interesting figures, was known not only as a philosopher, exegete, and halakhist but also as a contributor to the fields of astronomy and mathematics. In this new translation of Gersonides' Commentary on Song of Songs, Menachem Kellner brings to English-language readers a work that draws together many important elements of Gersonides' thought: philosophical theology, philosophy of science, biblical exegesis, and Aristotle/Averroes commentary. With an informative introduction and thorough annotations, this volume focuses fresh attention on an important example of medieval Jewish biblical commentary and medieval philosophical thought.
