    More Information:

    Gallico, rabbi and kabbalist, published a summary of Moses Cordovero's Pardes Rimmonim under the title Asis Rimmonim in Venice 1601.

    Azariah Da Fano (1548-1620), Italian rabbi and kabbalist, who was recognized as the foremost expert in the West on Moses Cordovero's kabbalistic system. He was a patron of Jewish learning and paid for Cordovero's Pardes Rimmonim to be published in Salonika in 1584. His great kabbalistic work, the Asarah Ma'amarot, has only had parts printed.

    This commentary was attributed to Shabbetai Sheftel Ben Akiva Horowitz by Furst and Benjacob but is by Mordecai ben Jacob of Prague (see Encyclopedia Judaica 8:1003.)
