Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses an essential step towards an in-depth study of Latin-into-Hebrew texts. It provides a significant component to the topography of the intercultural and interreligious networks that extended across Europe. The chapter examines an intellectual milieu that started in Toledo. It considers the texts and their transmission within their wider intellectual context, which includes thinkers such as Ibn Gabirol, Ibn Sīnā and Ibn Daud, whose influence on Dominicus Gundissalinus, one of the most prominent Toledan intellectuals, is well known. The chapter presents five case-studies and editions that concentrate on the more mature phase of scholastic influence on Jewish intellectuals during the fifteenth century in its variety of appearances. The first two case-studies present further encounters with materials relating to natural philosophy and metaphysics in a scholastic vein. The last three studies take us even further in place and time, namely into different areas of Renaissance Italy.

Keywords: Europe; Ibn Daud; Ibn Gabirol; Jewish intellectuals; Latin-into-Hebrew texts; Toledo
