Summary expansion
Sefer Bechinat Olam is the best-known literary work of Bedersi. It is a lyrical, ethical monograph on the theme of the futility and vanity of this world, and inestimable benefits of intellectual and religious pursuits. Published for the first time in Mantua between 1476 and 1480, the work has been reprinted at least 70 times with and without commentaries, including translations into several European languages; see Encyclopedia Judaica, volume 9, columns 1308-1310
