Overview

The Gazelle: Medieval Hebrew Poems on God, Israel, and the Soul by Raymond P. Scheindlin

The Spanish rabbi-poets -- among them Jehudah Halevi, Solomon AIbn Gabirol, and Samuel the Nagid -- actually used themes from love poetry and from Arabic philosophy to express religious ideas. Influenced by Arabic poetry, these Hebrew poets wrote with a sensuousness that would have been unacceptable to earlier generations.
