Meet the Author

 Samuel Romanelli was a free spirit, a son of the Enlightenment and the Age of Revolution. He spent much of his life traveling in search of knowledge, adventure, and patrons for his literary endeavors. He was born in Mantua in Austrian-ruled Lombardy on September 19, 1757, the son of Moses Hayy and Consola Romanelli. Little is known of Romanelli's youth. It is clear from the mastery of Hebrew, the Scriptures, and both early and late rabbinic sources exhibited in his writing that he received a superb education in the Italian Jewish tradition. He probably studied in the Talmud Torah of Mantua which also included arithmetic in its course of studies.
