Samson ben Abraham of Sens


Samson ben Abraham of Sens
(fl. 12th-13th cent.)
   French tosaphist. During the first Maimonidean controversy (1202), he spoke on behalf of the French rabbis. He opposed the teachings of Maimonides' Mishneh Torah and attacked his view of resur-rection. The founder of the academy at Sens, he was one of the leaders of 300 rabbis who settled in Palestine at the beginning of the 13th century. He wrote talmudic commentaries (Tosaphot Sens) and liturgical poetry.
