Ibn Hazm was one of the most influential Arabic speaking writers and thinkers from the 11th century. He had a polemical relationship with his contemporary, Samuel the Nagid. Both men fled Cordoba after the fall of the caliphate. He is remembered most for a book about love, "The Neck Ring of the Dove."
