Description
   Rabbenu Sa'adyah Ga'on's major philosophic work, written in Arabic, Kitab al-Amanat wa-al-Itiqadat, is the earliest Jewish philosophic work from medieval times to have survived intact. It was translated into Hebrew by R. Judah ibn Tibbon in 1186 under the title Sefer ha-Emunot ve-ha-De'ot (Constantinople, 1562), and has exercised a profound influence on Jewish thought.
