Details
A rabbi in Germany, having embraced the Christianity in 1784, and later was made Professor of Oriental languages at Madrid. His book, Defence of the Christian Faith, was written with great talent, and much knowledge of Scripture, as a defence of Christianity against Rationalism. However, the powerful logic with which he combated the reasonings of Voltaire and Rousseau, entirely deserted him when he attempted to defend Popery against the doctrines of the Reformation.
