Rambam lists the 13 Principles as the beliefs which measure one's merits for the world to come, and he writes it as an elaboration of the Mishnaic statement: "All of the Jewish people, have a share in the World-to-Come" (see Rambam_on_Mishnah_Sanhedrin.10.1.16).

Does Rambam refer to those principles elsewhere in his other works?

  • If you're asking if Rambam refers to the 13 Principles as such, I don't know. He does cover them in his enumeration of those who don't have a share in the World to Come, in his Mishneh Torah, Hilkhot Teshvah, chapter 3.

  • @TamirEvan, at aishdas.org/asp/ikkarei-emunah I note that the Rambam Hil' Teshuvah divides up the principles among the three types of heretic along the same lines as the way R Yosef Albo (Sefer haIqarim) divides shorashim ("roots", principles of faith that are derivable) among his three iqarim (which he uses to mean mandatory first principles).
