Description
   Moral and ethical text oft reprinted and translated in many languages. With the approbation of R. Hayyim Palache.

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.
