Rabbi Ezra ben Shlomo’s commentary on the Song of Songs is considered one of the most important texts of the first clearly identified circle of Kabbalists, those operating in the Catalonian town of Gerona at the middle of the 13th century. It was originally published with an attribution to Nachmanides. This version includes 20th-century translations and annotations by Professor Seth Brody.
