This is the first complete English translation of Hasdai Crescas's Light of the Lord, a seminal work of medieval Jewish philosophy. Crescas challenges the Aristotelian underpinnings of medieval thought, introduces alternative physical and metaphysical theories, and presents service to the God of love and benefaction as the goal for humankind.

Daniel Frank, Journal of the History of Philosophy Apart from partial translations by Warren Harvey and Harry Wolfson, the English-speaking student of (late) medieval Jewish philosophy has had limited access to the text. Thanks to Roslyn Weiss's felicitous new translation, this is no longer the case.


Tyron Goldschmidt, Religious Studies ...this translation will hopefully inspire further serious work in Jewish philosophy, and draw others in the English-speaking world into Jewish philosophy. The translation comes not a moment to soon. That there has not been a complete translation until now is scandalous. The future of Jewish philosophy will be deeply indepted to Roslyn Weiss.
