A man of many talents, he is renowned both for his neo-platonic philosophical classic, Mekor Hayyim, (The Fountain of Life, Latin: Fons Vitae) and for his eloquent Hebrew liturgical poetry. This many-sided genius made him an especially appealing subject to Abraham Geiger who, in the course of preparing lectures on Jewish history, came to be so fascinated by Ibn Gabirol that he wrote this biography and study. The literature on Ibn Gabirol is not large, but this study ranks highly, being required reading for all students of the man and his times. Geiger, a master student of Jewish-Arabic relations, was particularly qualified to undertake this monograph. German text
