Abstract

The sources, content and fate of the 15th-century allegorical fable "Visisn Deleytable are examined from three angles: as a medieval compendium of religious philosophy, as a major influence in Spanish literature, and as an invaluable historical source on Jewish-Christian interactions in medieval Spain.
The volume is divided into three sections. The first part considers "Visisn's didacticism within the Jewish and Christian frames of education in 15th-century Spain. The second part includes a review of "Visisn's philosophical content as a comprehensive articulation of a rationalist "Weltanschauung. The final section traces its intriguing editorial fate and literary influence through the 17th century in Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.
It is "Visisn's first systematic study from the dual perspective of a Hispanist and a Hebraist.
