Creator Muelhausen, Yom Tov Lipmann, active 14th century-15th century
Description Hebrew work by an eminent rabbinic leader in Prague, Bohemia. "Mülhausen's most historically repercussive work was this polemic against heretics and Christians, Sefer nitsaḥon (meaning both polemic and victory). Written in a lively and accessible style, it reflects Mülhausen's contacts with diverse classes of Jews as well as his actual polemical encounters with Christian clergymen. The work endured for centuries in manuscript as a resource to Jews and a challenge to Christians. It is a summa of arguments intended to deride Christians for their misreadings of Hebrew texts, and to arm Jews with a firm understanding of their faith. His material is culled from earlier textual sources such as the Sefer nitsaḥon "yashan" (late thirteenth-early fourteenth century) as well as from his own debates with Christians."--Yivo Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe.
