The works of Maimonides, particularly [[product product-id="" caption="The Guide for the Perplexed"]], are. Maimonides is shrewd and somewhat inconsiderate.

Maimonides' works, as the author intimates, were necessarily written with a degree of opacity as to shield himself from the critical eye of Islamic authorities of the day and as such, were never as accessible to me as a young student, perhaps because they weren't to my teachers as by: Maimonides has books on Goodreads with ratings.

Maimonides's major contribution to Jewish life remains the Mishneh Torah, his code of Jewish law. His intention was to compose a book that would guide Jews on how to behave in all situations just by reading the Torah and his code, without having to expend large amounts of time searching through the Talmud.

Needless to say, this provocative. Maimonides' Judeo-Arabic writings were translated to Hebrew hundreds of years ago by various translators who did not do his writings justice, even in his lifetime (see, e.g., Rabbi Qafih's introduction [Hebrew] to his edition of Maimonides' Moreh: ().Cited by: Books Advanced Search New Releases Best Sellers & More Children's Books Textbooks Textbook Rentals Sell Us Your Books Best Books of the Month of results for Books: Moses Maimonides Skip to main search results.

Maimonides was strongly against what he believed to be a heresy present in unlearned Jews who then assume God to be corporeal (or even possessing positive characteristics).

Maimonides’ advanced views aroused opposition during his lifetime and after his death. In one zealot, Rabbi Solomon of Montpellier, in southern France, instigated the church authorities to burn The Guide for the Perplexed as a dangerously heretical book.

But the controversy abated after some time, and Maimonides came to be recognized as a pillar of the traditional faith—his creed became part.
