Summary

Maimonides – Rabbi Moses ben Maimon – was born in Spain at 1135 and died in Egypt in 1204. He was known in the Jewish tradition as the “Great Eagle” due to his eminence in so many fields: as a jurist, philosopher, scholar, physician and theologian. Maimonides is perhaps the best-known and most widely studied figure in Jewish history from medieval times until the present day.
