R. Aaron Samuel ben Moses Shalom of Kremnitz was a pupil of R. Ephraim Solomon ben Aaron Luntschits (1550-1619) when the latter was rabbi at Lemberg. R. Aaron Samuel was forced to emigrate to Germany as a youth. Toward the end of 1606 he was preaching in Fuerth. In 1611 he was in Eibelstadt (not, as often stated, Eisenstadt), Lower Franconia, where he wrote Nishmat Adam. In 1615 he became rabbi in Fulda, where he wrote an introduction and notes to a homily on the Decalogue by R. Baruch Axelrod (Hanau, 1616). In Nishmat Adam R. Aaron Samuel mentions three unpublished works on ethical and religio-philosophical problems (Be'er Sheva. Or Torah. and Ein Mishpat), as well as novellae to the Talmud, entitled Kitvei Kodesh.
