Abstract

While it is generally agreed that Ramon Martí's (c. 1220-1284) Pugio fidei must be considered a landmark in polemic literature, shaping the Christian-Jewish discourse of the following centuries, there are very few analyses dedicated to establishing the extent and nature of its immediate reception. This paper studies the influence of Martí's apologetics on three major Catalan theologians. Starting with his contemporary, Ramon Llull (1232-1316), who was critical of Martí's intellectual project, the paper proceeds by focusing on the affirmative reception of Martí's ideas in Arnau de Vilanova's (c. 1240-1311) Allocutio super significatione nominis tetragrammaton and, particularly, in Francesc Eiximenis's (c. 1327-1409) Lo Crestià, which draws heavily on Martí's explanation of the Tetragrammaton. © 2012 by Recherches de Théologie et Philosophie médiévales.
