Ezra the Prophet of Moncontour

Resource Toolbox

French tosafist flourished in the thirteenth century. The title "prophet" is, according to Zunz, an honorific one. It is possible that his French name was "Profiat," which was translated into Hebrew as "Nabi" (= "Prophet"). Ezra is quoted in the Tosafot under various names e.g. , "Azriel," (B. Ḳ . 24a), "Ezra" (B. B. 28a), and "Ezra ha-Nabi" (Giṭ . 88a). Sometimes he is quoted simply as "the rabbi and prophet of Moncontour" (). Gross identifies Ezra with R. Ezra of Moncontour, cited as a religious authority in the Halberstamm Manuscript No. 345 also with Ezra ha-Nasi (a misspelling of "ha-Nabi" = "the Prophet"), who is counted among the disciples of Isaac ben Solomon the Elder.
