Provençal theologian of the second half of the fourteenth century; lived successively at Salon, Avignon, and Argon. He was the author of a casuistic and philosophical work, still extant in manuscript ("British Museum Cat." MS. No. 2705). It is divided into three parts, each with a different title: (1) "Pesaḳim," on things permitted and prohibited ("issur we-hetter"); (2) "'Ezrat Nashim," on marriage, levirate, and divorce laws; (3) "Sod ha-Hashgaḥah," containing essays on ethics, philosophy, and mysticism.
