The writings of Abraham Ibn Ezra (1089-1167) include biblical exegesis and theological treatises as well as a scientific corpus written for the first time in Hebrew, which can be regarded as ''the beginning of Hebrew Science''. In this book the author examines the way in which Ibn Ezra inserts scientific data into his exegetical-theological works, a novel method that results in the discovery of new scientific and theological insights. Ibn Ezra is outstanding also in the way in which he harmoniously combines his scientific perspective with his commitment to Jewish culture and tradition.
