Chapter Summary

One of the fields in which the linguistic upsurge first found proper expression wasmost probably due to close relationships which Apulian Jewry maintained with the Palestinian milieuin the composition of liturgical poetry. SH is one of the most significant examples of the cultural wealth enjoyed by Apulian Jewry in the 10th century. The most important source for Shabbatai Donnolos life is his preface to SH which, although primarily aimed at providing his readership with an explanation for his interest in the sciences of the Gentiles, offers a detailed and reliable account of the authors early youth. The literary production of Shabbatai Donnolo ranges in subject matter from pharmacopoeia through human pathology to astrology and astronomy.
