On offer: Or Hashem - The Light of G-d by Rabbi Chasdai Kreshkash [a renowned Jewish scholar in 15th century Spain died just 12 years prior to the Spanish expulsion. He is particularly known for his works on philosophy.] This book is a work of philosophical perspective on Jewish scholarship and Jewish life. It's also the Rebbe's effort to defend the Maimondian, a 12th century sephardic philosophical work called Moreh N'vuchim -"Guide to the Perplexed". In the 12th century philosophy was very important in real life, but by the 15th century, people didn't look at life from a philosophical perspective as much as the Aristotelian laws were no longer absolute.) Published: Johannesburg, South Africa. Originally printed 1555, this is a later printing circa 1861. Well used, well rubbed and generally soiled but interior text is better though some mis-folds and some age-toning. Overall F+.
