Rabbi Azaria [Di-Rossi] of the Adumim (Ra'av-Shalach, Otzar HaRabbanim 16731) was an Italian sage, well versed in Torah and science. His book "Maor Einim" was confiscated immediately after its appearance by Italian rabbis, who found parts that go against the spirit of tradition and disregard the words of Chazal.

The book was brought before Rabbi Yosef Caro - Maran Beit Yosef, who ordered a boycott of the book, but the boycott did not materialize. The Maharal of Prague spoke about the book in very harsh words, and it is known that his essay "Beer Hagola" was written in response to this book.
