Translated by R. Abraham Assa, the single most important contributor to the Ladino literature of all times. Ladino religious literature had its origins in pre-expulsion Spain, it was only in exile, however, that it really developed. The major original translations include the Book of Psalms (Constantinople, 1540); the Pentateuch (Constantinople, 1547); the Prophets (Salonica, 1572); and a complete translation of the Bible by R. Abraham b. Isaac Assa (Constantinople, 1739–45), which became the most popular text among the Sephardic communities of the East.
