Chapter Summary

This appendix contains Piyyūtīm by Elʿazar Ben Halfon Hakohen on the Basis of MS Cambridge University Library T-S Misc. 24.59. The collection of Elazar’s poetry is impressive and contains more than four hundred compositions with a striking preponderance of panegyrics, laments, homonymic poems, and epigrams. Elazar was strongly involved in promoting the Baghdadi-Jewish elite, dignified people who held high office in the city, either as government officials or as leaders of the Jewish community.
