Chapter Summary

This chapter contains a critical edition of Joseph Seniri's Hebrew text. Seniri's commentary on the Former Prophets is his only extant work. This work clearly belongs to the Provençal tradition of Jewish exegesis, at the confluence of the northern and southern schools, and reflects the state of Jewish religious thought in Provence at a time of political upheavals and intellectual unrest. The analysis of the text and its study in context allows us to identify the author and to situate him in his scholarly context. The exegetical method of the commentary is typical of the Provençal School of Bible study, but the scrutiny of its characteristics and contents also highlights the existence of close links with different Provençal commentators who lived at the turn of the thirteenth century.

Keywords: Hebrew text; Jewish exegesis; Joseph Seniri; Provençal tradition
