Hebrew Manuscripts : Meirat Enayim

Isaac ben Samuel, of Acre

Hebrew Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Meirat Enayim by Isaac ben Samuel of Acre. Kabbalistic supercommentary on Nahmanides' Commentary on the Torah copied for a certain Rabbi David in Revere in the Po Valley near Mantua. The title of the work most likely refers to the last words of Psalm 19.9 ("enlightening the eyes"): "The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes." Two brief deeds of sale on folio <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(354);return false;'>174b</a> dated 1515 and 1537 and several ownership notes on folio <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(7);return false;'>1a</a> in the manuscript confirm that it was sold multiple times, among which at least once or twice locally in view of references to Revere and (probably) Casalmaggiore. Censor Domenico Ierosolomitano signed the manuscript in 1598.</p>
