When Maimonides' Mishneh Torah reached Lunel, France, scholars composed twenty-four objections to his positions. Maimonides' rejoinder opened with an unusual rhymed prose epistle with effusive praise for his correspondents and artistic and complex language. In this book, Charles Sheer offers the first annotated translation of the entire epistle.
