Summary: From the ninth to the fifteenth centuries Jewish thinkers living in Islamic and Christian lands philosophized about Judaism. Influenced first by Islamic theological speculation, classical philosophers and Christian Scholasticism of the Middle Ages, Jewish philosophers and scientists reflected on the nature of language about God, the createdness of the world, the possibility of human freedom and the relationship between divine and human law. This Companion presents all the major Jewish thinkers of the period. It is a comprehensive introduction to a vital period of Jewish intellectual history.
