Overview

One of Maimonides' classic works, the Treatise on Resurrection is an extended discussion of resurrection, the immortality of the soul, the mysteries of the Messianic Age, and the World to Come. The Treatise on Resurrection was controversial in its day for its departure from accepted Jewish theology. Despite opposition to his ideas, Maimonides defended his view with skill and confidence. Fred Rosner's notes provide the background necessary to fully understand Maimonides' position, and his translation is an articulate rendering of this influential text, which validates resurrection as one of the cardinal principles of Judaism.
