Following the Spanish Expulsion, the survivors of the catastrophe, including Don Isaac Abrabanel, struggled to comprehend their suffering and were seized with acute meta-historical feelings for the coming of the Messiah. Ma’ayenei HaYeshu’ah (“Wells of Salvation”) is the first work of Abrabanel’s passionate trilogy on the imminence of Messianism.See B. Netanyahu, Don Isaac Abravanel: Statesman and Philosopher (1968) pp. 77-8.
