This booklet has reasons. the 1st is obviously ancient, the second one is extra philosophical and interpretive. Its luck within the former should be much less controversial than its attainment of the latter. The contribution to the historical past of Spanish letters is composed in severely setting up the truth that the assets of Fray Luis de Le6n's ethical and non secular proposal are Hebraic and that he should be visible to face as one in a protracted line of Christian Hebraists, either scholastic and humanist. His philosophical perspectives are solid in an Hebraic culture, now not in an Hellenic one as meant by means of approximately another commentator. i've got under pressure the presence of a residing Hebrew tradition in Spain after 1492, and i've steered 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 similar to Egidio da Viterbo and Girolamo Seripando. yet, even they realized from exiled Spaniards. i need to provide Fray Luis as a such a lot attribute philosopher on the earth of Baroque Spain. i believe such a lot will consider the image i've got defined. The extra audacious point is my desire to exhibit the significance of the Jewish historical past as present in the literary and philosophical construction of this striking genius. it truly is, in fact, my competition that this day be aware of­ ledge approximately Fray Luis and what he stood for is awfully important.

Sample text

Schuster, "Fray Luis de Leon and the Linguistic Approach to Epistemology," The Kentucky Foreign Language Quarterly, VI, (1959), pp. 195-200, notes this theory of parallelism in Fray Luis, but I do not think he entertains the possibility of its cabalistic significance. Gershom G. Scholem, "La Signification de la Loi dans la Mystique Juive," Diogene (Paris), XIV (1956), pp. 45-60, and XV (1957), pp. 76-114. CHRISTIAN HEBRAISM 28 is a web of divine names or attributes. Furthermore, the cabalistic mystic sees the Torah as alive and active as God is.

This was the Fortalium Fidei of Alfonso de Espina (d. c. 1491), a converted Jew and Franciscan who had risen to high places in the state, Church, and University. He inspired in the name of orthodoxy a persecution of Jews that was to last for centuries. He changed the nomenclature of Jews introduced by Pablo de Santa Mana and drawn from the teaching of Vicente Ferrer and of Aquinas. 9 The change of attitude generally provoked by Alfonso de Espina was not necessarily a change in the Thomistic tradition, at least not at that time, for he could well have based his own ideas in Occamism in which theory the Decalog is dispensable, and, incapable of being distinguished from reason's law.

6: 24-26, which mentions the all important Name. Fray Luis says that the litter, standing for the Jews, is Solomon's becaue the king is really Christ who will lie there. The same imagery is used in when Fray Luis has the bridegroom praising the camp of the Israelites as though it were a woman, comparing the various parts of the camp to the four groups of the Twelve Tribes as though they were features of the female body. Moses and Aaron are the breasts as the midrash quoted in the Pugio Fidei indicates.
