Item Description:

Doctor, mathematician, philosopher, and Torah scholar, Maimonides is an unparalleled genius in Jewish thought. Yet his prolific work raised terrible controversy; his books were even burned. Hear about his life and times, and discover why it is said of him: "From Moses to Moses there arose none like Moses."

• the Almohad rebellion, Islamic militants of the day
• the Mishnah Torah, a towering work of Jewish Law
• Maimonides' stint as Saladin's most trusted court physician
• how Maimonides is the prime example of a Jew in Spain's "Golden Age"

For more on the life and works of Maimonides, please see our series "The Life of the Rambam."
