The Geonim and the Golden Age of Spain: The Jews in Exile

The great sages known as the Geonim (lit., “geniuses”) were the successors to the Rabbanan Savorai, who in turn succeeded the Amoraim (about 3980–4260), after the completion of the Babylonian Talmud. Subjects covered include the rise of the Karaite movement, Jewish life under Moorish rule in North Africa, and the Golden Age of Spain.
