In his Primer del Crestià, chapters 117-25, Francesc Eiximenis refuted beliefs of a certain "Rabbi Moises" or Maimonides concerning Christian beliefs, especially the claim that Jesus was not the Messiah. The text of Maimonides which particularly upset Eiximenis and others in the realms of Aragon, including the royal family and the clergy, was the Hilkhol Melakhim, XIV, also called "Shophetim." Eiximenis further attempts to negate four major claims of the Rabbi Moises; however, these opinions do not come directly from Maimonides' works but rather from commentaries on his opus and Latin polemic works. The influence of Maimonides is also present in the urgency to rebuke and censor the "Shophetim" and sections of the Mishneh Torah which Eiximenis found oflensive to Christians.
