Chapter Summary

Most of the collections of Andalusian secular poetry were to be found from the fourteenth century onward only in the hands of the few members of distinct literary cycles, his works served for centuries for any Hebrew reader in the Mediterranean as a major source to meet the unique spirit of secular poetry that had developed from the tenth to the thirteenth century in Spain. And when the fourteen books of this work was seen, when everybody who knew the Holy Language looked at it and began to observe the harmony of the arrangement of the commandments and what is written in the Book of Knowledge about the rulings and wisdoms then their eyes were opened and they stood on their own for copying the books, each one for himself.
