About this book

This book examines texts and materials, ranging from the eastern Mediterranean to northwestern Europe, related to the Maccabean martyrs. Joslyn-Siemiatkoski demonstrates that Christian thinkers constructed memories of the Maccabean martyrs that simultaneously appropriated Jewish traditions and obscured the Jewish origins of Christianity.

Reviews

" Christian Memories of the Maccabean Martyrs is an eloquently written and richly documented study on interfaith devotion and commemoration of the Maccabean Martyrs from the early to late Medieval period. By examininghow Christians appropriated and created collective memories of these Jewish martyrs alongside the parallel continuation and cultivation of memory and devotion of them among Jews,Joslyn-Siemiatkoski provides a model study on Jewish/Christian interfaith culture." - Darleen Pryds, Associate Professor of Christian Spirituality and Medieval History, Franciscan School of Theology
