Date: Tuesday, October 9, Time: pm Light Refreshments; pm Talk. Harry A. Wolfson once described medieval philosophy as a philosophy “which placed itself at the service of Scriptures” (Philo, II, p. ).From a formal aspect, a new genre was created: “From now on, a new form of exposition appears in philosophic literature, the homily on some scriptural text or the running commentary upon some scriptural books” (p. ).

      Beit ha-Behirah is not a running commentary on the Talmud, although Meiri wrote on each tractate then studied. Meiri records his community’s commitment to philosophy and the sciences as a change in orientation resulting from the publication of the Hebrew translation (from Arabic by Samuel ibn Tibbon) of The Guide of the Perplexed. treatises-the Commentary on Ecclesiastes3 and Ma'amar yiqqavu ha-mayim.4 These treatises are explicitly devoted to philosophic exegesis of bib-lical verses, but are deeply impregnated with the proper interpretation of Maimonides' philosophy and with its problematics.
