Solomon ibn Gabirol was a Jewish Neoplatonist philosopher and poet who lived in Spain during the Islamic period. Of interest here is the extensive discussion of the structure of the cosmos in the extended poem 'The Royal Crown,' which includes a section which describes each of the celestial spheres in turn. Also apparent are references to Kabbalistic concepts. But the main focus of these poems is Gabirol's intense relationship with God.
