The contribution to the heritage of Spanish letters is composed in significantly constructing the truth that the resources of Fray Luis de Le6n's ethical and religious suggestion are Hebraic and that he might be noticeable to face as one in an extended line of Christian Hebraists, either scholastic and humanist. His philosophical perspectives are forged in an Hebraic culture, no longer in an Hellenic one as intended by way of approximately some other commentator. i've got under pressure the presence of a residing Hebrew tradition in Spain after 1492, and i've urged that this and the Jewish parentage of Fray Luis are very major. i've got additionally pointed out an highbrow debt Fray Luis owed to non-Jewish Orientalists comparable to Egidio da Viterbo and Girolamo Seripando. yet, even they discovered from exiled Spaniards. i need to offer Fray Luis as a so much attribute philosopher on the planet of Baroque Spain. i feel so much will trust the image i've got defined. The extra audacious element is my desire to express the significance of the Jewish historical past as present in the literary and philosophical creation of this impressive genius. it's, in fact, my rivalry that at the present time recognize­ ledge approximately Fray Luis and what he stood for is awfully important.

Example text

The letters of that language are in those of Scripture, but they are not ordinary modes of communication. Nor are they simply configurations of divine power. 14 Creation is reflected in two worlds, that of the Sephiroth and the letters of Scripture, and that of nature. The magical character of the Torah and the importance of the name of God is a very old idea in Judaism and is supposed in the midrashim, one of which declares that God created the world on the model of the Torah. This idea was developed in a new way in 13th Century cabalism.

Rici said the moral part of the Law of Moses is the only part to which any Jew is obliged outside of Palestine. This corresponds to the moral obligations of the Christians.
