Loria, Salomo a noted rabbi, was born at Posen in 1510. Gifted with great talents, he devoted himself to a thorough research of Jewish literature. On account of his onslaughts on Jewish tradition he became involved in manifold controversies with his colleagues, and was persecuted; but, though personally disliked on account of his inclination to polemics, and not sparing even the private characteristics of living authorities, his just merits concerning the Talmud were recognized after all, and his commentaries on six volumes of the Talmud are held in high reputation among the Talmudic Jews to this very day. He died in 1573. See Gritz, Gesch. d. Juden, 9:467 sq.; Fürst, Bibl. Jud. 2:260 sq.
