Kampanton, Isaac Ben-jacob

Kampanton, Isaac Ben-Jacob, a Jewish rabbi of some note, was born in Castile in 1360. Of his personal history but little is known. He was gaon of Castile, and is particularly- noted for his contributions to Talmudical literature, and his influence, through his pupils, on Jewish literature of the 15th century in the Spanish peninsula. He died at Penjafiel in 1463. One of his most important works is דרכר התלמוד (Ways of the Talmud, first published at Mantua in 1596), an introduction to the study of the Talmud (really a methodology). See Gratz, Gesch. d. Juden, 8:152; Jost, Gesch. d. Judenthums, 3:87; Fiirst, Biblioth. Jud. i, 140. (J. H.W.)
