Keter Malkhut is perhaps the greatest religious Hebrew poem of the Middle Ages which, in three parts, celebrates God, the wonders of creation and is penitential. Written by Solomon ibn Gabirol (1021-1058), a Jewish philosopher living in Spain, the poem provides an insight into his philosophy, scientific and religious knowledge, and his creativity. This book consists of a new edition of Bernard Lewis' 1961 English translation with facing-page Hebrew, along with an exteded introduction and commentary on Solomon ibn Gabirol, his life and background within the realms of medieval philosophy and mysticism.
