Item description for Iberian Jewry from Twilight to Dawn: The World of Rabbi Abraham Saba (Brill's Series in Jewish Studies, Vol. 10) by Abraham Gross...
The Jews were expelled from Spain in 1492. Those surviving the ordeals they encountered tried to rebuild their personal lives and to reconstruct Sefardic religious and cultural traditions in North Africa and in the East. This volume tries to depict the world of one of the refugees who formed part of the cultural bridge between Spain and the new havens of the Sefardim. Rabbi Abraham Saba of Zamora was a preacher, cabbalist, and biblical exegete. He attempted to settle in Portugal, suffered the persecutions instigated by the Crown with his coreligionists and was finally expelled to North Africa. His literary works and thought are put in the proper cultural context and are analyzed against the background of historical reality.
