Don Isaac Abravanel (1437–1508) was a major historical figure during the waning of the Middle Ages. Statesman, diplomat, courtier, and financier, he was, at the same time, a scholar of encyclopedic learning, a philosopher, an exegete, a prolific author, a mystic, and an apocalypticist. In his book, Don Isaac Abravanel, Benzion Netanyahu suggests, two long lines of medieval Jewish paths: that of medieval Jewish statesmen and that of medieval Jewish philosophers. In this book that combines the biography and the exploration of Abravanel's thought and influence, Netanyahu describes how Abravanel illuminated the grave crisis and profound transformation (The Spanish Inquisition) experienced by the Jewish people after the Spanish expulsion. First published in 1953, Don Isaac Abravanel has been out of print for several years.
