Description

The first comprehensive account of Protestant and Catholic attitudes toward Jews and Judaism in the European Reformation In this rich, wide-ranging, and meticulously researched account, Kenneth Austin examines the attitudes of various Christian groups in the Protestant and Catholic Reformations towards Jews, the Hebrew language, and Jewish learning. Martin Luther’s writings are notorious, but Reformation attitudes were much more varied and nuanced than these might lead us to believe. This book has much to tell us about the Reformation and its priorities-and has important implications for how we think about religious pluralism more broadly.
