Nahmanides' Commentary on the Torah is one of the most important commentaries ever written including for the Kabbalists who sought to understand the esoteric passages presented by Nahmanides 'By the Way of Truth' ('al derekh ha-emet). As early as thirteenth century an esoteric abridgement of his commentary circulated in manuscript form and is published here for the first time in a critical edition with an introductory study positioning this document in the history of esoteric writing amongst the early Kabbalists.
