Avraham ben Me
Manuscripts (document genre)
A treatise on Kabbalah, astrology and fortunetelling with elaborate diagrams of the zodiac. Ibn Ezra was an earnest apologist for astrology and translated many astrological treatises from Arabic into Hebrew. Maimonides, using Biblical law as a guide, was an early and important critic of this “science”, although predictions of the coming of the Messiah depended heavily on it.
