Summary
"This volume examines the sources, content and fate of the fifteenth century allegorical fable Vision Deleytable from three angles: as a medieval compendium of religious philosophy, a major influence in Spanish literature and an invaluable historical source on Jewish-Christian interactions in medieval Spain." "It is divided into three sections. The first part considers Vision's didacticism within the Jewish and Christian frames of education in fifteenth century Spain. The second part reviews Vision's philosophical content in comprehensive articulation of a rationalist Weltanschauung. The final section traces its intriguing editorial fate and literary influence through the seventeenth century in Spain, Italy and the Netherlands." "It is Vision's first systematic study from the dual perspective of a Hispanist and a Hebraist."--BOOK JACKET
