Rabi Moshe ibn Habib (1654-1696) was born in Salonika, his father Shlomo ibn Habib was from a prominent Spanish-Jews family who were expelled from Spain as a result of the Alhambra Decree. At the age of 15 he travelled to Jerusalem to study and was noted for his talent, knowledge of the Torah and wisdom. He specialised in Jewish marital law and agunot (women who wouldn't be granted a divorce from their husbands) and wrote two books on the subject, the most famous of which is the offered one. A responsa book he wrote famously drowned in sea and only parts of it were published.
Moshe ibn Habib died young and his books were not published during his lifetime, but kept as manuscripts until his grandson Rabi Yaakov Culi edited and brought them to print in Constantinople, as there were no Hebrew printers in the Holy Land at the time.
