Introduzione alla Kabbalah (Italian Edition)
While the notion of the non-Solomonic authorship of Ecclesiastes is today accepted by secular scholars, most modern scholars do not ascribe the work to an actual individual named "Qohelet", but rather regard the term as a label or designation of some kind, akin to the Septuagint 's translation of "Preacher. As to the Book of Isaiah , in spite of the prevalent opinion that chapters were written after the Babylonian captivity , Luzzatto maintained that the whole book was written by Isaiah. He felt that one of the factors that pushed scholars to post-date the latter portion of the book stemmed from a denial of the possibility of prophetic prediction of distant future events, and therefore was a heretical position.

Difference of opinion on this point was one of the causes why Luzzatto, after having maintained a friendly correspondence with Rapoport , turned against the latter. Another reason for the interruption of his relations with the chief rabbi of Prague was that Luzzatto, though otherwise on good terms with Jost , could not endure the latter's extreme rationalism.
He consequently requested Rapoport to cease his relations with Jost; but Rapoport, not knowing Luzzatto personally, ascribed the request to arrogance. Luzzatto was a warm defender of Biblical and Talmudical Judaism; and his strong opposition to philosophical Judaism or "atticism" as he terms it brought him many opponents among his contemporaries.

However, his antagonism to philosophy was not the result of fanaticism nor of lack of understanding. He claimed to have read during twenty-four years all the ancient philosophers, and that the more he read them the more he found them deviating from the truth. What one approves the other disproves; and so the philosophers themselves go astray and mislead students.
Another of Luzzatto's main criticisms of philosophy is its inability to engender compassion towards other humans, which is the focus of traditional Judaism or, as Luzzatto terms it, "Abrahamism". It is for this reason that while praising Maimonides as the author of the "Yad," Luzzatto blames him severely for being a follower of the Aristotelian philosophy , which, he says, brought no good to himself while causing much evil to other Jews "Penine Shadal," p. Luzzatto attacked Abraham ibn Ezra also, declaring that the latter's works were not the products of a scientific mind, and that as it was necessary for him in order to secure a livelihood to write a book in every town in which he sojourned, the number of his books corresponded with the number of towns he visited.
Luzzatto's pessimistic opinion of philosophy made him naturally the adversary of Spinoza , whom he attacked on more than one occasion. During his literary career of more than fifty years, Luzzatto wrote a great number of works and scholarly correspondences in Hebrew, Italian, German and French. Besides he contributed to most of the Hebrew and Jewish periodicals of his time. His correspondence with his contemporaries is both voluminous and instructive; there being hardly any subject in connection with Judaism on which he did not write.

There, he entered into the personal service of the famed cardinal and patron of humanistic learning Domenico Grimani.
Indeed, if we are to take the famous sixteenth-century Italian Jewish chronicler Gedalya ibn Yah. Nevertheless, Lelli Galatina, Gedalya ibn Yah. Jerusalem, , Perhaps even more importantly, it shows that, at the very least, de Balmes was perceived by his contemporaries and by subsequent genera- tions of Jewish scholars as a bridge between the Jewish world and the world of Renaissance learning. This comes as no surprise, given his background and given a surge in interest in medieval Arabic philosophy.
The general Renaissance attention to variant forms of perennial wisdom that brought about the rebirth of classical learning also had as a byproduct a surge in interest in medieval Arabic thought. A new wave of translations via Hebrew intermediaries began around and lasted for about seventy years; this new wave saw nine- teen additional Averroean commentaries translated into Latin for the very first time.
One recent scholar has pointed out that during the sixteenth century more translations of Aristotle and his commentators, including Averroes, were carried out into Latin and vernacular languages than had been carried out in all previous centuries combined. De Balmes figured quite prominently within this new wave of interest.
A relatively recent scholarly inventory lists fourteen Averroean works that were translated by de Balmes into Latin, in addition to works of Avempace and Alfarabi. Hankins New York, , — Not only were his translations numerous, they were also influential; indeed, they were incorporated into what would become the standard sixteenth- century edition of Aristotle, which was published in Venice in In addition to the Averroean works, de Balmes wrote what was to become a famous Hebrew grammar, at the behest of the eminent Chris- tian printer of Hebrew works, Daniel Bomberg.
It is noteworthy that several impor- tant European thinkers used this grammar; these included Johannes Buxtorf, Menasseh ben Israel, Benedict Spinoza, and Franciscus Merc- urius van Helmont.
While in Hebrew grammar, the term harka- vah typically denotes a linguistic unit, de Balmes may also very well be deploying it in a different manner. Anthony J.
De Balmes not only displayed his kabbalistic thought intermittently in his grammatical opus Mikneh Avram, thereby giving this kabbalistic thought a purely linguistic feel; as would perhaps be expected, he also clothed it in philosophy, giving it an Averroistic character. In a sense, the two come together to make up the thirty-two paths of wisdom with which Sefer yetsirah begins. The independent scholar Raphael Kohen produced a Hebrew transcription of the epistle with notes and an introduction in in Jerusalem, though it was Klijnsmit, Balmesian Linguistics, 9.
Sefer yetsirah 1. Toward the beginning of the epistle, de Balmes cites both Sefer yetsirah and the aggadic midrash Pirke deRabbi Eliezer, both at length; this is in order to establish the importance of the number 10 for an understanding of the Creator and his workings. Since God is pure contemplation that is beyond all human contemplation, then it is precisely only through contemplation that we can paradoxically begin to fathom the uncontemplatable nature of God. This process takes place for de Balmes through a philosophical contem- plation of the ten sefirot.
De Balmes explicitly references Aristotle and Averroes several times throughout the epistle, and given his Averroean background, this is cer- tainly not surprising. By contrast, absolutely no mention is made of any specific kabbalistic work or author. Nevertheless, it is possible to postulate at least some of the types of kabbalistic works that may have influenced the epistle. Such speculation is based on some of the concepts that de Balmes espouses, coupled with a unique manuscript compendium of Spanish kabbalistic sources that was in his possession, at least toward the end of his life.
