Traditionally ascribed to Samuel of Morocco, a Jewish convert to Christianity, the text is known first in the Latin translation of Alfonsus Bonihominis; Samuel is possibly fictitious and Alphonsus was probably in fact the author of the text. Cf. Marsmann, M. Epistel des Rabbi Samuel an Rabbi Isaak, 1971.
