English commentary: The section on Spinoza summarizes the article Fraenkel, Carlos (2008) .
"The apparent paradox of Spinoza is that he appears to advocate both the view of Averroes - that the truth of Scripture does not contradict the truth of philosophy - and the view, later adopted by Enlightenment critics of religion, that one would search in vain in Scipture for the true doctrines demonstrated in philosophy" (p. 70).URL: http://Google Books
