Ibn Daud, Abraham ben David ha-Levi

Ibn Daud, Abraham ben David ha-Levi (Rabad; c.1110–80). Jewish philosopher, historian, and physician. Ibn Daud worked for most of his life in Toledo where he eventually died as a martyr. His most important books were Sefer ha-Kabbalah (The Book of Kabbalah, G. D. Cohen, 1967), which defends Judaism throughout history against the Karaite heresy, and Al-ʿAqida al Rafiʿa, tr. into Heb. as Ha-Emunah ha-Ramah (The Sublime Faith), which defends the doctrines of Judaism using Aristotelian modes of thinking. Both books have remained influential down to modern times.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
