first edition, the first work in latin devoted to the kabbalah. During his second visit to Italy in the early 1490s, Reuchlin met Pico della Mirandola and was inspired by his interest in the Kabbalah. De verbo mirifico is written in the form of a dialogue between a Greek (Sidonius), a Jew (Baruchias) and a Christian (Capnion, or Reuchlin himself); it contains quotations from Pico's kabbalist Conclusiones, which were first published in 1486.
Amerbach is named in the preface, which is dated 21 April 1494.
