Chapter Summary

How original is Tiferet Bahurim? An examination of its elements in isolation, each one separately, will hardly lead us to place it alongside other original and innovative late seventeenth century Italian works, Jewish or Catholic. One could easily be mistaken and catalogue it as yet another work, not even a very important one, dealing with family, sexuality, couple relations, husband-wife or parents-children relationships, or educating the young, repeating previous wordings and summarizing well-known formulations. The personal dimension of the author's family attachments, the cultural and political climate of the Ferrara community and the city of Ferrara, the ambience of Counter-Reformation religiosity - all are well reflected in it. The originality of this work emerges from a combination of parameters and elements familiar from Jewish tradition and from the Catholic surroundings, which will become evident in the course of the discussion.

Keywords: Counter-Reformation; Ferrara community; Jewish tradition; Tiferet Bahurim
