Abraham, Ben-isaac

Abraham, Ben-Isaac, a Jewish writer of Granada, is the author of a Cabalistic work entitled The Covenant of Peace (בֵּרַית הִמנוּחָה): written between 1391 and 1409, wherein he "discusses the mysteries of the names of God and the angels; of permutations, commutations, the vowel-points, and accents, and declares that he who does not acknowledge God in the manner of the Cabala sins unwittingly, is not regarded by God, has not his special providence, and, like the abandoned and the wicked, is left to fate." This work was published in Amsterdam, 1648. See Furst, Bibl. Jud. i, 8; Gratz, Gesch. d. Juden, 8:105 sq.; Ginsburg, The Kabbalah, (Lond.1865), p. 121 sq. (B. P.)
