Dogma in Medieval Jewish Thought

This chapter covers three figures who have written on the principles of Judaism. All of them are late fifteenth-century Spanish Jews, who each composed theological works in which dogmatic questions are given fairly brief and unsystematic attention. Abraham Shalom (d. 1492) is the author of Neveh Shalom, a work ostensibly devoted to justifying the Aggadic portions of the Talmud but which also includes a series of philosophic discussions devoted to discovering which teachings of philosophy accord with the Torah. Isaac Arama (1420–1494) wrote a popular homiletical commentary on the Pentateuch, Akedat Yiẓḥak. Finally, there is R. Joseph ben Ḥayyim Yaveẓ (1438-1507), who devoted two short works to the principles of Judaism.

Keywords:   Abraham Shalom, Isaac Arama, Joseph ben Ḥayyim Yaveẓ, Akedat Yiẓḥak, Neveh Shalom, principles of Judaism
