Moše ben Baruk Almosnino Regimiento de la vida; Tratado de los suenyos (Salonika, 1564)
Moses ben Baruch Almosnino was born c. 1518 in Salonika. He was a rabbi, renowned preacher, scholar, and leader of the Salonika community. This current edition of his letters addressed to his nephew comprises four sections. The introduction discusses the title's historical context, genre, content, and language. An English translation of the original Hebrew introduction is then followed by a Latin-character transcription of the Rashi character Spanish text.
The book's chief audience is Hispanists, but scholars of Jewish studies will also find it interesting because it embodies a unique record of the ethical and intellectual panorama of first-generation Sephardim in the Ottoman Empire.
