Christian views of Nicholas de Lyra's Biblical commentary

+2
−1

Hello.

Yesterday I came upon a Hebrew translation of Nicholas de Lyra's commentary on Ruth. I found it to be intriguing for a number of reasons. One reason was that he based much of his commentary on that of the famous Jewish commentator, Rashi, although he doesn't always state that he's basing off of Rashi. Usually he either writes as if he thought of the idea himself or that "the Jews say (so and so)". But a few times he does refer to "Rabbi Solomon" (Rashi) by name and he seemed to be quite respectful, especially for a man of his status, occupation, religion and era.

I was wondering whether there were other Christian scholars/clergymen, in particular ones who were contemporaries of his, who were familiar with his Jewish-based commentary and wrote about it. What did they think about? Did they view it positively or negatively?
