Astral Magic in Medieval Jewish Thought

Astral Magic in Medieval Jewish Thought
Dov Schwartz

Prize for Jewish Philosophy of the Goldstein-Goren International Center for Jewish Thought, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, 1997-2000

The book sheds new light on Jewish rationalistic thought of the late Middle Ages, particularly in Spain and Provence, and shows how many philosophers used the Magic-Astralic model as an effective exegetic tool for the understanding of biblical and rabbinic issues. The volume traces philosophers from Yehuda Halevi and Ibn Ezra to 15th-century thinkers.
