Chapter Summary

This chapter briefly discusses the views of the late medieval jewish writers: Profyat Duran, Shelomoh Bonafed, Abraham Bibago and Abraham Shalom, on Maimonides. For more than two hundred years after Maimonides death it was almost impossible to disregard him or to overlook the great debates that he had provoked in his time. The chapter focuses the attention on several Catalan authors of the first and second half of the century, and tries to trace different patterns of attitudes of respect to the Rambam. In view of the many facets of these debates, it considers in particular the relations between faith and reason, Torah and the philosophy and science of the Greeks, and the role played by logic for these authors that not only lived at the same epoch in the same kingdom, the Crown of Aragon, but had also in common a certain familiarity with Latin, and with Christian Scholasticism.

Keywords: Abraham Bibago; Abraham Shalom; Christian Scholasticism; late medieval jewish writers; Maimonides; Profyat Duran; Shelomoh Bonafed
