Ezra ben Shlomo of Gerona

Rabbi Ezra ben Shlomo was one of the leading kabbalists of his day in Gerona, Spain. His works show the influence of his teacher Isaac the Blind, and he, in turn, greatly influenced his contemporaries and the kabbalists of the 13th and 14th centuries, who quoted his works frequently. He wrote a commentary on the Song of Songs as well as commentaries on talmudic legends and prayers.
