Впервые на русском языке изданы астрологические сочинения Авраама ибн Эзры, одного из самых прославленных и разносторонне одаренных деятелей эпохи конца золотого века еврейской культуры в Испании. В еврейской традиции Ибн Эзра известен как библейский комментатор, а также путешественник, поэт и философ, а в средневековой Европе его ценили, прежде всего, как астролога. Трактат “Начало мудрости” и комментарии к нему, составившие “Книгу обоснований”, судя по количеству списков и переводов, пользовались большой популярностью в Средние века.
