Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book Traditions of Maimonideanism contains the table of contents. The main goal of the book is to shed light on a number of traditions of Maimonideanism that have hitherto been little explored. The essays in the first part examine aspects of Maimonides' work that certainly deserve greater scholarly attention. The method and historical influence of Maimonides' medical treatises in general, and of his work on gynaecology in particular, are discussed. It also focuses on Maimonides' halakhic and liturgical work. The second part looks at how Maimonides was read, misread, and creatively reinvented in a wide range of contexts in the East and in the West - from medieval Cairo to Crown Heights in Brooklyn. It explores different aspects of Maimonides' legacy in the Arabic-speaking Jewish communities of the Islamic world, i.e., in the geographic and intellectual context in which this legacy took shape.

Keywords: Arabic-speaking Jewish communities; Islamic world; Maimonideanism
