Abstract

The Western Sephardic communities came into being as a result of confessional migration. However, in contrast to the other European confessional communities, the Sephardic Jews in Western Europe came to Judaism after a separation of generations from the religion of their ancestors. The contributions in this volume detail those transformations in the Early Modern Western Sephardic communities. Readership: All interested in Early Modern Jewish History and Sephardic Studies, and anyone concerned with the process of confessionalization in Europe during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Abstract

In Cultures in Collision and Conversation, David Berger addresses three broad themes in Jewish intellectual history: Jewish approaches to cultures external to Judaism and the controversies triggered by this issue in medieval and modern times; the impact of Christian challenges and differing philosophical orientations on Jewish interpretation of the Bible; and Messianic visions, movements, and debates from antiquity to the present. These essays include a monograph-length study of Jewish attitudes toward general culture in medieval and early modern times, analyses of the thought of Maimonides and Nahmanides, an assessment of the reactions to the most recent messianic movement in Jewish history, and reflections on the value of the academic study of Judaism.

Abstract

The term ´Judeo-Christian` in reference to a tradition, heritage, ethic, civilization, faith etc. has been used in a wide variety of contexts with widely diverging meanings. Contrary to popular belief, the term was not coined in the United States in the middle of the 20th century but in 1831 in Germany by Ferdinand Christian Baur. By acknowledging and returning to this European perspective and context, the volume engages the historical, theological, philosophical and political dimensions of the term`s development. Scholars of European intellectual history will find this volume timely and relevant.
