All MIR Students are required to develop their
own personal ReflexoCure Creed as a requirement of graduation.
This creed is developed during their course of study with the
INSTITUTE. The graduates will continue to develop their philosophy
of practice through the faithful exercise of INTUITIVE
EXPERIENTIALISM. Displayed below are some reflexology creeds
of the INSTITUTE's Graduates which are under girded by a memorized
statement of Thomas A. Edison, Sc.D., "The doctor of the
future will give no medicine, but will interest his patient in
care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention
love my neighbor as myself. I know I will never get to the bottom
of human anatomy, as it is beyond human comprehension, but I
will do my best to understand it to the best of my ability and
be absorbed in the well being of mankind, both spiritually and
want to excel in helping my neighbor achieve better health.
It is my prayer that pride may never cloud my intention to help
both the poor and the rich.
sickness often reduces us to lowly beings that sees us as we
really are, thus making that vital contact with God; it may
be the recovery of good health that helps us maintain the relationship
with our maker, and if I can be used in a small way to help
people feel better, it may be the push they need to restore
their relationship with God Jehovah, and keep it.
Dr. Brinkerhoff is part of the long line of the reflexology
heritage, that he passed on to me so generously with techniques
and health hints, it is also my resolution to share generously
all that I have learned, so that people in this remote part
of the world (Uganda) may also come to see the power of reflexology,
and how reflexology is a powerful delivery system for Botanic
Medicine, thus speeding up recovery.

I feel I learn as much from my clients as they learn from me.
It is a practice that requires unconditional love and understanding
and an open heart. Often it is the tips of my fingers that do
the listening and learning, but it is important to remain open
to the physical and verbal clues coming from the recipient. By
keeping the lines of communication open and truly listening to
the client, an extremely beneficial and helpful treatment can
occur. I promise to provide a complete, honest, and humble service.

I will also use prayer and meditation as a source of inspiration

a seeker of knowledge, I realize that one of the best ways to
learn a subject is to teach it. I will use my reflexology practice

treat themselves and their loved ones.

to physical benefits in my own body. I have watched reflexology

of many days. I will lead by example and apply a holistic approach

we take the time to honor ourselves completely, healing can occur

My Mission Statement
I appreciate that we are wonderfully made by the
who has endowed our bodies with
the innate ability to heal and maintain health.
It is my sincere endeavor to address
the individual needs of my clients
and help them to recognize
the strength within themselves
to reach their highest health potential.
I will always remain open to new concepts and
incorporating these with the wisdom
of ancient and modern healers,
along with my personal skills,
to promote healing, health, joy
and awareness of our awesome natural universe.
I believe that having had the privilege to being
the student of many world renown reflexology teachers, energy
healers and holistic practitioners, it is an honor to state the
It has been a great pleasure to have advanced
further my studies in the field of reflexology by having learned
and continue learning, the method and techniques taught by My
cherished and respected friend and brother - Dr. Zachary Brinkerhoff.
The methods and concepts taught at the Modern
Institute of Reflexology are based on the original methods and
concepts used by the Pioneers and Revolutionaries of reflexology.
A revolution that is continually carried on today by the MIR,
with its teaching and techniques. I believe that reflexology is
the "Conceptual Signature" of the future of healing!
Its disciplines, science, art and service, when properly implemented
by its practitioners with the true intention of helping the sick
and infirm to rid their ailments, manifest the law of love and
positive universal energy handed down by our Heavenly Creator.
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!"
I highly recommend the modern institute of reflexology
to anyone who wishes to expand their knowledge on the subject
and service of reflexology as the true science that it is.
Peace and God's Blessing to All.

Victoria's Reflexology Creed
Embarking on this journey has been a joyous event. The more I
learn - the more I realize I have a lot to learn. My desire is
to keep that thirst for knowledge going. Not to stay an infant
in the field of Reflexocure, but to attain the experience needed
to give professionalism and credibility to my practice.
Through this maturation process I hope to help not only myself,
but also those who look to me for guidance. To help those individuals
learn to care for themselves with my new expanding abilities.
And to empower recipients of treatment by showing them that they
can control their health through diet, positive thoughts, and
Reflexology. Or at the very least - to live a more positive and
less stressful life.
We must bear in mind that the only true relief for the world
will come when God's Kingdom, promised to us by our Heavenly Father,
rules here on Earth as it does in Heaven (Matthew 6:9-10).
It's a comfort in this topsy-turvy world to know that all of Gods
Promises come true (Isaiah 55:11, Joshua 23:14). So while
we await that promise of a "New Heaven and New Earth"
(2 Peter 3:13), it is also comforting to know that as
imperfect individuals - we can strive to encourage others to attain
unto the greatest degree of health possible in this present system
of things. Meanwhile, we long for the perfection lost in Eden
- yet promised again for us.

As a reflexologist, I will aspire to bring comfort
and healing to my clients in a professional and caring atmosphere.
I will continue to study and be aware of what can be done as a
reflexologist to help my clients. I will be reasonable collecting
fees for my services.
To be a reflexologist allows me to interact with
others on the common ground of humanity. Without preconceptions
or expectations, I can connect with others in a comforting way
that encourages positive health benefits. I consider their treatment
time to be a prayerful time. It is a time devoted to that client.
I will strive to be in tune, listening to the client and to my
own intuitive and learned knowledge.
As a reflexologist, I hope to help others release
their stress and anxieties. I hope to make others more aware of
their feet, their bodies, and their right to be. I hope that my
clients will feel a renewed sense of relaxation, energy, and respect
for their feet. I hope that they might learn what they can do
to improve the condition of their feet, therefore their entire

I reaffirm the words of
Thomas A. Edison, who said:
"The Doctor of the future will give

We must remember that we are the Temple of the
Holy Spirit and in charge of the care of our body.
As Professional Reflexologists, we have been given
a Gift of Healing. We must use this Gift according to the highest
professional standards of our profession.
We must never forget the commission given by our

Since being led by
the Lord to Dr. Zachary Brinkerhoff and his Full Spectrum Reflexology,
I have been blessed with participation in a multitude of miracles.
Throughout my lifetime I will continue to be a catalyst for the
dynamic results which can be achieved by following Zachary's teachings.

the Lord's blessings that the miracle of spontaneous healing occurs

her contributions to reflexology, so will I celebrate Zachary
Brinkerhoff for his contributions of the Photon Beamer (my miracle

Responsibilities ------- As a reflexologist, it is my responsibility
to encourage others to find balance in their lives without my
needing to be compensated in material ways. The largest reward
will always be the light of love that ignites an individual to
strive to maintain peace and realize their self worth. I will
serve with no thought towards prejudice for this is counteractive

Martha's Philosophy of Reflexology
(Colombian Martha Cecilia's Creed in
Since a very early age, I have had an interest in nature, the
environment and in simple and natural methods of healing body
ailments. Because of this interest, over the years I became connected
with various doctors and medical assistants at schools of natural
medicine that existed in Colombia, my home country.
After marrying, I came to live in the United States. In my search
about natural healing treatments I encountered the Modern Institute
of Reflexology and its director, Doctor Zachary Brinkerhoff, III.
He oriented me in the fascinating world of reflexology.
I learned from his teaching to focus all my attention only on
my patient and to put away personal arrogance in order to better
perceive information the patient has for me. Because of Dr. Brinkerhoff's
good examples, I learned how to listen, and to be sympathetic
to the patient's physical and emotional states and in a harmonious,
delicate way how to integrate complete treatment for each individual.
My patient is my ultimate responsibility. I try to incorporate
lessons with my treatments by encouraging healthy lifestyles that
include a natural, healthy diet, appropriate physical exercises
and types of relaxation. (Martha Cecilia Kessler)
Mi Credo Sobre Reflexologia
(Martha Cecilia's Creed in Colombian Spanish)
Desde muy temprana edad me interese por la naturaleza, el medio
ambiente y su relacion con el tratamiento de dolencias y enfermedades
de una manera natural y sencilla. De esta forma poco a poco me
vincule con doctores y practicantes de las diferentes escuelas
de medicina natural que existian en ese momento en Colombia mi
pais de origen.
Luego me case y me vine a vivir a los Estados Unidos. En me busqueda
sobre tratamientos naturales encontre El Instituto Moderno de
Reflexologia y su director el doctor Zachary Brinkerhoff, III,
quien me oriento en este mundo fascinante de la Reflexologia.
Aprendi de sus enseñanzas a enfocar toda mi atencion solamente
en mi paciente y de abandonar cualquier orgullo de mi parte y
de esta manera percibir verdaderamente la informacion que mi paciente
quiera comunicarme. Gracias a los buenos consejos del doctor Brinkerhoff,
escucho y me entono con el paciente y asi puedo percibir informacion
importante que venga de su estado animico y emotional, y de esta
manera, lo integro en un tratamiento completo, delicado y armonioso.
Mi paciente es mi responsabilidad en su parte fisica como tambien
en la manera de ayudarlo a conocer otras formas de vida mas natural,
dieta sana, ejercicios fisicos y de relajacion.
Por ultimo mis sinceros agradecimientos para el doctor Brinkerhoff
quien ha sido mi fuente de inspiracion y de admiracion desde el
primer momento que entre en contacto con el.

Holistic Health Care Creed
My mission and responsibility
in the Natural/Holistic Health Care field - as a ReflexoCurist,
Aromatherpist, Reiki Master, Sound Therapist, Holistic Health
Practitioner, Nutritional Consultant and Master Herbalist - includes
3 very important components - no one more important than the other
but all working together towards one ultimate goal - the complete
and balanced health and well-being of my clients.
These components are:
1) True Caring and Right Motive - My motives for entering and
continuing to practice in the Natural Health Care field are simple
- I wish to serve, support and help my fellow human beings regain
and maintain their health and prevent dis-ease of the body, mind
2) Education - I do
and will strive to further educate myself throughout my life and
career in order to be able to better educate my clients in the
care and maintenance of the human body. Knowledge is power for
the client and I hope to be able to provide some of that knowledge
in order to help them regain and maintain responsibility and control
of their own health.
3) Example - I will
strive to take care of myself and my family in a manner that sets
an example for all around me - whether they be acquaintances,
friends or clients. An example of love, responsibility, education
and health is more powerful than any book, lecture or admonition.
My ultimate goal is
to help provide my family, my clients and myself the knowledge
and techniques necessary to keep our bodies - physical, mental,
emotional and spiritual - in a state of optimum health throughout
our lives. I will strive to do this with love, patience, tenacity,
curiosity, belief, an open mind and accepting spirit.

As a professional Reflexologist, I have the
opportunity to pursue my purpose in life to help make a difference
in helping people to feel better, look better, and be better.
To be a part in helping another make health and lifestyle changes.
This will be very gratifying and rewarding and my calling in
life will be fulfilled.
I am committed to be a part in health and life
changing challenges to those who seek my professional expertise.
To truly obey god's commandments, I believe we need to give
the best we have, and the best will come back to us.
I believe I was created to live in perfect
health naturally my entire life. Therefore, I am committed to
set a good example for my clients by keeping my mind, body,
and soul healthy and energized. I will be a tower of strength
to the weak. I have an abundance of faith, courage, trust, love
and gratitude that I know will be contagious to my clients.
I will practice habit control which is essential
for a happy, long, and pain-free life. I will maintain my high
life energy which will benefit my clients. I believe the real
reason for not healing is that the body is running out of energy.
As a reflexocurist practitioner of an age-old
health practice, I will continue on the path to further my education
and improve techniques working with reflex pressure points on
the hands, feet and ears and use them to help on the treatment
of various body disturbances. I will educate my clients of the
benefits and importance of detoxification, good nutrition, exercise,
and reflexology to create a healthy lifestyle change.
Precious souls are sent to us throughout our
lives to share in our journey, however brief or lasting their
stay, they remind us of why we are here on earth. I will adhere
to the directive of the Sovereign Creator and continue to live
in peace by treating others as I desire that they treat me.

Reflexology as a professional
science is ancient. Making it to an effective and successful craft
for our days and developing it beyond that into a dynamic and
wonderful healing art is my goal.
According to Lakota
legend Sinkpe was a gentle, kind and humble man. Seeing
his tiyospaye (his family/his people) in danger of being wiped
out from sickness, he went to weep, to fast and to pray for inspiration.
Guided accordingly, he was allowed to help and to heal.
I believe that
humility is the first virtue above all else, and that simplicity
is the mark of distinction, and of truth, and of beauty, and of
what elevates craft to art.
reverentia. By wisdom, by love and by devotion, and by respect,
I will practice my profession as a reflexocurist.
The root of wisdom is divine inspiration.
The fruit of wisdom is love.
And the instrument of transferal is respect.
Early on, my Elders
taught me that man shall be noble, helpful and good. Nobility
is not a rank but a way of life in generosity, in loyalty, in
courage and magnanimity, and in benevolent obligation to service.
Always, I will see
to it, and always, I will renew my efforts to guard
my tongue, to cleanse my heart, and to dream my dream. Today well
lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow
a vision of hope.
Consideration and accuracy,
sensitivity and sensibility, kindness, cheerfulness and alertness,
good judgment, calmness and magnanimousness will make my intelligent
and faithfully devoted care efficient for the sick
and the dis-eased and successful for the clients seeking
relief, restoration, revitalization and rejuvenation - and wholeness
altogether and bliss (kalokagathia in Greek; wicosanni in Lakota
and (with) cante-waste traveling on the canku luta!).
I will strive
to treat and to instruct my clients so well and I will endeavor
to interest them also in Care of the Human Frame, in Diet, and
in the Cause and Prevention of Disease so much as to enable them
to share in life lived well, in dreams of happiness, and in visions
of hope. In sharing, we give of ourselves and reflect our true
purpose in life.
gentleness and firmness I will respond to the conditions
and situations at hand.
openness and patience I will pursue my profession as reflexocurist
to the benefit of all, catalyst at best.
trust and courage I believe in our potential.

Point on 2nd toe.
I believe that a new journey in life begins towards healing oneself
through body, mind and spirit with reflexology. I believe that
I have been given a special gift from our Creator that will help
me in helping others with healing themselves and giving each individual
a simple approach to better well being.
My calling enables me to show others how they can achieve the
sense of wholeness and vitality, and help eliminate illness and
pain from their lives through reflexocure. I learned that there
is a special force that will let our bodies heal naturally and
helps us gain a sense of control, when all other methods have
failed. I truly believe that one can succeed with helping others
through reflexology and this is the true reward in life that I
seek. Some will come to me seeking help and may not be able to
afford these services, however, it is my promise to myself that
I will help those in dire need and that the material possessions
in life are not always what matters most.
Through my practice I want to be able to listen to my clients
so I may respond to their individual needs and restore their faith
in natural healing in order to be able to teach them how they
can help themselves to achieve total wellness.
Reflexology is the power one holds in their own hands to help
themselves and others to eliminate pain and illness, and have
a sense of wholeness in their life. As I progress in my profession
the true awards that I will gain will be my opportunity to see
others seek a sense of wholeness, health, happiness ... and to
treat my clients as I would wish to be treated by them.

Reflexology in my life is a mode to channel
Gods Love and healing energies to help all people in need who

Cave Junction, Oregon
| Bridget's ReflexoCure
I consider Reflexology to be a complementary, integrative, blended
health science, through which a pressure is applied to reflex areas,
formed by 7,200 nerve endings in each hand and foot, encouraging
improved instruction to each and every organ, gland and single part
of the body, thus persuading the body to biologically correct, strengthen
and reinforce itself.
"I commit to pray
for my clients."
Through reflexology, I will attempt to offer an overall health
enhancement program, working toward reeducating, re-patterning,
and reconditioning the nerves through the neural/electrical system
of the body. The sole job description of the nerves is to instruct
the body; when the nerves improve~the instruction must improve~hence,
the body improves.
My goal is to aid my clients to improve and benefit their overall
health status by relaxing a particular area of the body through
a highly specialized specific relaxation technique. I hope to
improve nerve, blood and lymphatic supply, stop further deterioration,
strengthen and reinforce all systems in the body, and to persuade
the body to biologically correct itself by maintaining balance.
Reflexology is not a belief system, but a health practice without
contradictions. It is a safe, effective and reliable process,
because it is persuasive, not invasive.
I commit to listen to my clients and respond carefully with the
help of my Heavenly Father. I also commit to pray for my clients
as they enter and exit my establishment. I believe with reflexology

of the mind, body and spirit.
Given that Reflexology
is the top of the line for healing arts, I will encourage others
seeking to learn more about it to be grateful for the contributions
of ancient healers. I am in awe of the meticulous recordings,
charts, graphs, and cultural contributions from ancient wisdom.
I feel extremely fortunate to have been led down the path of reflexology
I will listen
to the concerns of each client and through prayer, meditation
and my innate intuitive power implement a concise, thorough, and
effective treatment plan to enable the client to balance and heal.

Christine's ReflexoCurist Creed
I think reflexology can be a very good profession.
There are a lot of people out there today that need help to
feel better from all the different diseases in the world.
One of the reasons I started with reflexocure
in the first place was to help my ill husband. So I plan to
continue daily treatments for him so he can feel better day
As I expand my practice beyond my home, I promise
to do my best as a reflexocurist. I will listen and really pay
attention to the needs of my patients, because there is not
anything that makes me feel better than being able to help somebody.
As a reflexolocurist we can not expect to help
every body, but I will do my best job for anybody who comes
to me for this beneficial therapy. My hope is to open my own
reflexology practice one day and for it to be busy as I strive
to help people.

I promise to do my best in every reflex session;
to give the support and kindness each person needs. I will try
my best for each individual, whether it be reflexing the feet,
hands, or ears, using the beamer, giving emotional, spiritual,
or encouraging support.
I promise to do my best in every way possible making it known
to my clients that it is not I that am doing any healing, but
by GODS' grace and tender mercies, and by HIS power, HE heals.
I am only the hands HE uses to reflex the patients needs for
I promise to do whatever I can and deem necessary in each person
that I work on, as one person may need a totally different treatment
and result than another person needs.
I will do my best to make each person that comes to me for treatment,
happy, satisfied, and educate them on how they must take care
of themselves for better health and happiness.
I will, by GOD's grace, try my best to let each individual know
that GOD can heal anyone and that HE will help them in ways
I will try to be a strong comfort for those in need of better
health and those in need of up-lifting and encouragement.
I promise always to have a good and cheerful attitude expanding
positive energy to all those who come to me for help.
With GOD's help, I will do my best to be the best reflexocurist
the person who comes to see me has ever had, teaching them that
there is a natural way of healing at minimal cost, with no side
effects, but reminding them that it is not I that heals, but
GOD does the healing through my fingertips and hands.
May GOD use me to help others through my knowledge of reflexology.

I consider the reflexology profession as a resource
to help uplift the family unit & thereby better the lot of
nations. I reconcile myself that the rewards will not always be
material since some who seek me out will be broken with no money,
but I will daily receive & accommodate myself to each inquirer
without prejudice because I acknowledge the uniqueness of the
individual. I will therefore seek to discover the interior beauty
of each recipient's ... hidden beauty that I have been called
to discover and bring forth.
My purpose prescribes that I seek to relax the emotionally
anxious, revitalize the weak in body, restore the mentally confused,
and rejuvenate the spiritually downcast in order that they might
begin to choose the pathway that leads to life with a renewed
vigor of body, clarity of mind, and perception of spirit. Likewise,
I willingly accept the challenge to maintain my own health and
truly live my profession, because example is the greatest teacher.
In the course of a reflexocure treatment I will
observe and listen with restraint ... in order to properly perceive
and respond to the need of my recipient with words that might
revive their confidence and renew their faith. When the recipients
intuition and conscience indicate renewal, I can then take courage
that he might once again be motivated to take responsibility for
My professional philosophy continues to mature as
I seek to treat others as I desire that they should also treat
me. And above all, with the help of my Heavenly Father, I will
embrace every opportunity to demonstrate His love to my enemies
by a prayerful offer of a ReflexoCure treatment --- at no charge.

PRAYER OF MAIMONIDES
God, You have created the human body with infinite wisdom. Ten
thousand times ten thousand organs have You combined in it; that
act unceasingly and harmoniously to preserve the whole in all
its beauty; the body which is the envelope of the immortal soul.
They are ever acting in perfect order, agreement and accord. Yet,
when the frailty of matter or the unbridling of passions deranges
this order or interrupts this accord, then forces clash and the
body crumbles into the primal dust from which it came. You send
to man diseases as beneficent messengers to foretell approaching
danger and to urge him to avert it.
have blessed Your earth, Your rivers and Your mountains with healing
substances; they enable Your creatures to alleviate their sufferings
and to heal their illnesses. You have endowed man with the wisdom
to relieve the suffering of his brother, to recognize his disorders,
to extract the healing substances, to discover their powers and
to prepare and to apply them to suit every ill. In Your Eternal
Providence You have chosen me to watch over the life and health
of Your creatures. I am now about to apply myself to the duties
of my profession. Support me, Almighty God, in these great labors
that they may benefit mankind, for without Your help not even
the least thing will succeed.
me with love for my art and for Your creatures. Do not allow thirst
for profit, ambition for renown and admiration, to interfere with
my profession, for these are the enemies of truth and of love
for mankind; and they can lead astray in the great task of attending
to the welfare of Your creatures. Preserve the strength of my
body and of my soul that they ever be ready to cheerfully help
and support rich and poor, good and bad, enemy as well as friend.
In the sufferer let me see only the human being. Illumine my mind
that it recognize what presents itself and that it may comprehend
what is absent or hidden. Let it not fail to see what is visible,
but do not permit it to arrogate to itself the power to see what
cannot be seen, for delicate and definite are the bounds of the
great art of caring for the lives and health of Your creatures.
Let me never be absent-minded. May no strange thoughts divert
my attention at the bedside of the sick, or disturb my mind in
its silent labors, for great and sacred are the thoughtful deliberations.
that my patients have confidence in me and my art and follow my
directions and my counsel. Remove from their midst all charlatans
and the whole host of vicious relatives and know-all nurses, cruel
people who arrogantly frustrate the wisest purposes of our art
and often lead Your creatures to their death.
those who are wiser than I wish to improve and instruct me, let
my soul gratefully follow their guidance; for vast is the extent
of our art. Should conceited fools, however, censure me, then
let love for my profession steel me against them, so that I
remain steadfast without regard for age, for reputation, or for
honor, because surrender would bring to Your creatures sickness
my soul with gentleness and calmness when older colleagues, proud
of their age, wish to displace me or to scorn me or disdainfully
to teach me. May even this be of advantage to me, for they know
many things of which I am ignorant, but let not their arrogance
give me pain. For they are old and old age is not master of the
passions. I also hope to attain old age upon this earth, before
You, Almighty God!
me be contented in everything except in the great science of my
profession. Never allow the thought to arise in me that I have
attained to sufficient knowledge, but vouchsafe to me the strength,
the leisure and the ambition ever to extend my knowledge. For
art is great, but the mind of man is ever expanding.
God! You have chosen me in Your mercy to watch over the life and
death of Your creatures. I now apply myself to my profession.
Support me in this great task so that it may benefit mankind,
for without Your help not even the least thing will succeed."

(Submitted by Rebb Dovid Wheeler: "I
found this prayer translated into English from the original Hebrew.
It is from the great 12th Century Rabbi Moshe ben (son of) Maimon.
He was not only the community Rabbi in Egypt, but he was also
the personal doctor of Saladin, the Egyptian ruler. This prayer
is found in many hospitals and doctors offices. I think you will
find it very uplifting and moving. He wrote this prayer for all
physicians. It is my fervent prayer that I will not only offer
these words, but live up to these words before I open my doors
for clients. Dovid")
born Moses ben Maimon
on the eve of Passover in 1135 in Cordoba, Spain, to a prominent
rabbinical family. In his family tree figured King David and Rabbi
Yehudah HaNassi, who had compiled the Mishnah.
His primary teacher
was his father, Rabbi Maimon ben Joseph, a Jewish judge, who taught
him not only the Talmud, but also the fundamentals of mathematics,
astronomy and philosophy.
Maimonides was only
13 when his family was forced to leave Spain. After wandering
homeless for many years -- wanderings during which his father
died -- Maimonides and his brother David finally settled in Cairo,
Egypt. There Maimonides continued his Torah studies, while his
brother David, a dealer in gems, supported the family. When David
perished in a sea voyage, the burden fell on Maimonides.
to make money from his Torah knowledge, and therefore, in order
to earn a living, he taught himself medicine. Within
a short time, he was so famous as a healer that he was appointed
physician to the Court of Sultan Saladin in Cairo. He was also
appointed the chief rabbi of Cairo.
He was not proud to
be living in Egypt, however. It is against Jewish law for Jews
to live in Egypt after the Exodus, so he would sign himself "Moses
ben Maimon who violates the commandments of the Torah daily by
living in Egypt."
In addition to being
a famous doctor and healer, Maimonides was a prolific writer.
Of his voluminous works -- most of which were composed in Arabic
but written with Hebrew characters -- four stand out as perhaps
the most famous:
Commentary on the Mishnah -- his explanation of the Mishnah
Mishneh Torah -- his codex of all the legal decisions of the Talmud.
Guide to the Perplexed -- his explanation of how seemingly contradictory
teachings of the Torah are in fact part of a complete unified
Discourse on the World to Come -- his explanation of the Messianic
Age which includes the 13 Principles of Faith.
During his time the
writings of Maimonides proved highly controversial. Some of his
statements were deemed too radical, others were simply misunderstood.
At one point, his works were banned, and after his death in 1204,
they were burned at the instigation of the rabbis (in 1233).
However, when nine
years later, the French king Louis IX ordered the Talmud burned,
Jews interpreted this as a 'measure-for-measure' punishment from
God for the burning of the works of Maimonides. Indeed, the rabbi
who instigated the ban and burning, Rabbi Jonah Gerondi, subsequently
repented for doing so and authored the book Sha'arei Teshuva,
'Gates of Repentance,'as a form of atonement for his derogatory
statements about Maimonides.
Today the works of
Maimonides are universally accepted and revered. Indeed, Maimonides
is known in the Jewish world as one of most important of the Rishonim
or "the First Ones."
