SolomonIbn Adret

(c. 1235—1310)

Quick Reference

Spanish Rabbi, theologian, and Kabbalist (1235–1310), known, after the initial letters of his Hebrew name, as Rashba. Adret was one of the most outstanding scholars of medieval Jewry. During the fierce debates on the question of the study of philosophy, Adret steered a middle course, discouraging this study (‘What did the Greeks know of God?’) and yet, in a ban he pronounced in Barcelona (1305), he declared it forbidden only to those under the age of 25.
