More About this Item


Description: Manuscript, "Sefer HaKitzin - By R. Moshe bar Nachman". [Spain? 14/15th century]. Ancient cursive Sephardi script [this script was already used at the end of the 13th century; possibly this manuscript was written at that time]. Complete manuscript, containing the entire composition, more commonly known as Sefer HaGe'ulah by the Ramban. Ownership inscriptions in Italian writing: "Ezra of Pano son of the late Yitzchak" [died in c. 1608. Torah scholar of Mantua and Venice, uncle and teacher of the Rama of Pano, possessed a large library of manuscripts, including important copies of the Ari's kabbalistic teachings]; "Shimshon Cohen Modon" [1679-1727, Italian sage, Rabbi in Mantua, author of "Kol Musar"]; "Heirs of R. Shmuel of Pano". Corrections, annotations and several long glosses, in Italian Hebrew script [by two writers]. In Sefer HaKitzin, or Sefer HaKetz, better known as Sefer HaGe'ulah, the Ramban writes about matters related to the Redemption and calculations of its coming. According to the Ramban's opinion in this composition, the prohibition of calculating the "end" is annulled in the generation which verges on the Redemption. He writes that the reason sages cursed those who calculate the "end of the days", is that they knew the length of its coming "and do not want it to be revealed lest this (belatedness) weaken their anticipation", but in our days it is not forbidden to calculate the Redemption. True to his belief, the Ramban attempted to determine the Redemption using several sources from the book of Daniel and he reached the conclusion that in the year of 1358, the Messiah son of Efraim will reveal himself and in 1402, the Messiah son of David will appear. [42] pages. Fair condition. Stains and wear, worming, dampstains and tears, some restored. Several leaves have tears or damages affecting text.
