Abstract

This paper offers an analysis of Rabbi Shmuel Laniado’s commentary on Samuel’s call narrative. The discussion focuses on Laniado’s insights regarding the literary design of the story, first and foremost the principle of graduality as a central rhetorical principle which elucidates the plot,character design, and the message of the story. In light of the discussion,the unique character and methodology of Laniado’s commentary on this story is clarified. The innovation of his commentary, compared to both his predecessors and later commentators, sheds new light on Samuel’s call narrative. Considering Laniado’s position as a sixteenth and early seventeenth-century commentator in Aleppo, this discussional so contributes to illuminating Jewish post-classical commentary in the Muslim world.
