Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about Samuel of Roquemaure who left one Hebrew poem behind him, and which did not find many modern readers. The Sevillana Medicina is noteworthy for its originality and breadth, and in fact it is one of the few original works of Castilian medicine to survive the Middle Ages. These medical works continue to be the subject of new research. Moses illustrates in this work that he is already preoccupied with the often-dizzying nature of competing truth claims, and that he is unhappy with the inner turmoil and conflict among the Jewish intellectuals who were his peers. Poems by the enlightened Maestre Moses of Roquemaure in the city of Tolentino, are about R. He is the one who resides in Avignon in the papal court, Moses Samuel of Roquemaure.
