Adret(Abraham), Solomon ben (Adret, Solomon Ibn; Rashba)

(1235-1310)
   Spanish scholar. He studied under Nahmanides and was later the leader of Spanish Jewry. His legal decisions were viewed as authoritative because of his stature as a scholar; they constitute a primary source of information about the history of the Jews from the period. He defended Judaism from Christian and Muslim detractors and disputed the messianic claims of Abraham ben Samuel Abulafia.
