Alharizi, Yehuda ben Shelomo,
Alongside his career as a scholar of Arabic and Islam, S.M. Stern contributed many important studies to the Hebrew literature of the medieval Arabic realm, most of them grounded in manuscript research, especially in the geniza. He returned repeatedly to al-Ḥarizi, publishing newly discovered poems and maqāmāt by this author in Hebrew and in Arabic, including two maqāmāt on al-Ḥarizi’s travels, one in Hebrew and large portions of one in Arabic. He also recognized in an Arabic maqāmā quoted by Ibn Bassam the source of the story of the rooster in al-Ḥarizi’s Hebrew maqāmā collection known as the Tahkemoni, and to this discovery he devoted particularly stimulating analysis.
