Is there any evidence that Rambam was familiar with the writings of R' Yehuda Halevi? The more concrete the better.

  • R. Yishaq Sheilat's intro to his book בין הכוזרי לרמב"ם has some information on this topic. I don't have access now but if I recall he argues that the Rambam was indeed familiar with R. Yehudah ha-Lewi. May 1 at 23:45
  • Sounds like a good resource. I don't know where to get ahold of one.

  • Yehuda Halévy was from Muslim Spain, like the Rambam, and wrote a lot in Arabic. Rambam wrote that he is familiar with everything written in or translated into Arabic. It is inconceivable that he was not familiar with Halevy's opuses. May 2 at 20:43
  • @N.T. I have access to it now. I've uploaded it here: gofile.io/d/oTAPBU I suggest downloading it as the file automatically gets deleted after a certain amount of days. May 2 at 21:15
