We herewith present the critical edition, translation and notes from the second commentary of Abraham ibn Ezra on the Song of Songs. This work is preceded by an introductory study that considers among others, various aspects of the commentary and the influence that the previous and contemporary Jewish exegesis to Ibn Ezra’s may exert on his interpretations of the Song of Songs. Finally, we analyze some of the features that are part of the commentary of Ibn Ezra on the Canticles.

J. Mathews in 1874. Only thirteen out of the remaining twenty three manuscripts have been used for drawing up the critical edition, since ten of them have not been included in the present edition in spite of their belonging to the second commentary...
