The article focuses on the Jewish literary controversy regarding women and marriage. The author explored the extent to which medieval Jewish thinkers and writers participated in this contemporary discourse and whether there was any Jewish cultural specificity to their rendition of the conflict between married and meditative life. A series of Hebrew novellas written in Spain and Provence, France during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries are the focus of this study.
