Thank you for this series; I’ve learned a lot. It helps that all these rabbis are now people, not just names.

About the “Pardes”: does anyone else actually define “remez”? I see it defined in modern works the way you do, but as far as I can tell Moshe de Leon just mentions the name without saying what it means, and Ramban never uses the term as a whole way of understanding Torah (the way he does pshat, drash and sod). The classical commentators seem to just use those three.

It’s nice to see Bachya defining the third way, but it doesn’t seem to go with the word “remez”.
