JewishEncyclopedia.com - AZRIEL (EZRA) BEN MENAHEM (BEN SOLOMON): (969 words)
Attracted by the mystical studies that had begun to spread in Spain, Azriel went early to southern France, and became there a pupil of the celebrated cabalist Isaac the Blind, the son of Abraham of Posquières.
Azriel was, further, the author of a commentary on "Sefer Yeẓirah," entitled "Sefer ha-Milluïm," which was likewise ascribed to Naḥmanides, and published under his name in Mantua, 1719.
Azriel, however, had the merit of affording some guidance in the labyrinth of mysticism.
