Biblical Allusion in Bibago's Commentary on Aristotle's Metaphysics

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Abraham Bibago's introduction to his Hebrew, 15th century Commentary on Aristotle's Metaphysics gives an allegorical representation of the role of philosophical commentator in rhymed phrases mined from Biblical works. Bibago's attribution of almost messianic importance to elucidating Aristotle's Metaphysics is done in a style which is further developed in his magnum opus, Derekh Emunah. Yet, while Bibago may consider all Biblical and Talmudic texts open to allegorical interpretation, he interprets Aristotle philosophically and without reference to works of faith.
