Two Rare Treatises from Rabbi Menashe Ben Israel on the Fundamentals of Religion; Amsterdam, 1635 – 1636


Two treatises authored by Rabbi Menashe Ben Israel regarding fundamental principles of religion.

1. De Resurrectione Mortuorum – treatise proving the truth of techiyas hameisim (resurrection of the dead), with quotes from Chazal which are written in Hebrew lettering.
[1], 245 – 346 [6] sides | 14 cm

2. De Creatione Problemata – treatise proving that souls were created prior to the creation of the world.
[15], 156, [2] sides

Rabbi Menashe ben Yisrael authored these treatises in Latin as it was intended both for Marranos, who were not fluent in Lashon Kodesh, and for Christians, whom he argues with in these volumes.
