ABBA MARI BEN MOSES ASTRUC OF LUNEL

In Hebrew, manuscript on paper
Northern Italy, Sermide [Mantua], signed and dated 6 Tammuz 5218 [June 27, 1458]

One of only five manuscripts of a collection of letters and pamphlets in the important medieval controversy over the philosophy of Maimonides, the only manuscript of this small group that is dated and bears a colophon, the latter by a scribe who may also have been a wealthy Jewish patron in Mantua. The present manuscript differs significantly from the Pressburg edition and also from two of the other four manuscripts, which present variants.
