Abstract

I’m excited to announce the publication of the fifth and final volume of medical aphorisms by the great Medieval Jewish physician and theologian Moses Maimonides, translated from the Arabic by Gerrit Bos, a world authority on Maimonides. Moses Maimonides is among the most celebrated rabbis in the history of Judaism and the author of works on many subjects. Born in 1138 in Córdoba, Spain, Maimonides eventually settled in Egypt, where he practiced medicine until his death in 1204.
