Yod 22

Medieval and Early Modern Translations of Maimonides' Guide of the Perplexed

Moses Maimonides' Guide of the Perplexed has certainly been the most influential Jewish philosophical and theological text—from the time of its composition until today. Read More

Written around 1190 in Judeo-Arabic, the Guide was soon translated into Hebrew twice, by Samuel Ibn Tibbon and by Yehuda Al-Ḥarizi.
This issue of YOD deals with less known translations of the Guide, that have been composed by Christian and Jewish authors in Latin, Spanish, Italian, Hebrew, between the 13th and the 17th centuries. These versions testify to the long-lasting vitality of the
Guide in different cultures and times.
