Amour et Sagesse. (French Edition)

Bibel & Christentum

The Dialogues of Love by Yehudah Abravanel (c. 1465 c. 1525) is one of the most interesting examples of the encounter between Renaissance Platonism and Jewish tradition. Exploring some of the dialogic models for Yehudahs work as well as the influence of the Biblical commentaries by his father Isaac, this book re-reads the Dialogues in the light of medieval interpretations of the Song of Songs and Solomonic tradition. Already adopted by some Renaissance Jewish readers, this perspective suggests a new interpretation of the Dialogues: Yehudahs work may be regarded as an allegory of the encounter between a Jewish teacher Philon and the foreign science of philosophy Sophia which both seduces him and questions his wisdom.
