Chapter Summary

The diverse range of themes and genres may explain the author's decision to begin by presenting the general structure of the book, of the chapters' order, and of the main themes. This decision attests to the author's awareness of the exceptional nature of his book in its literary surroundings and to the readers' expectations from a manual of this type. It is also a response to the needs and standards of contemporary books printed in Italy - both Jewish and Christian - that place bibliographic tools at the readers' disposal to facilitate recourse. The central section of the manuscript is entitled Tiferet Bahurim and gives its name to the entire work. The sections that follow include three homilies, divided into sub-groups. These are followed by the writer's concrete instructions to his own children and closes with a prayer from Sefer Haredim.

Keywords: Italy; Sefer Haredim; Tiferet Bahurim
