Abraham Ibn Ezra's "Secrets" in the Early and Later Torah Commentaries

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this article, I compare Ibn Ezra's treatment of two esoteric doctrines in his early commentary to Genesis and Exodus, written in Lucca, and his later commentary on these books, written in Rouen. The first doctrine is the nature of the biblical angels, and the second is the rational soul and its ultimate end.
