About this book

A period of great change for Europe, the thirteenth-century was a time of both animosity and intimacy for Jewish and Christian communities. In this wide-ranging collection, scholars discuss the changing paradigms in the research and history of Jews and Christians in medieval Europe, discussing law, scholarly pursuits, art, culture, and poetry.

Reviews

“Elisheva Baumgarten and Judah Galinsky's volume …  is a welcome reminder of the Jews' long history in the French Hexagone. … All the essays are well-researched, meticulously edited, and to the point. Indeed, this a rare example of an edited book with a coherent construction and in which the different essays are in real dialogue with one another. … this is a volume of uncommon thematic coherence and all together a superb piece of scholarship.” (Flora Cassen, The Medieval Review, 2016) 


"This is a remarkable collection of articles which both deepens our understanding of problems long subjected to scrutiny and opens up entirely new vistas on Jewish-Christian relations in thirteenth-century France. Because the authors are so learned and so attuned to the relevant scholarship on other times and places, scholars with a wide variety of interests should return repeatedly to the collection for information and stimulation. The editors brought together an amazing group of authors - and they have not disappointed." - William Chester Jordan, Dayton-Stockton Professor of History, Princeton University, USA

"Impressive for their sound historical scholarship and their analytical acuity, the essays in this collection offer a fresh perspective on medieval life and culture. Jews and Christians in Thirteenth-Century France illuminates a particularly critical stage of transition in the interaction of hostile but interdependent religious communities." - Jeremy Cohen, Abraham and Edita Spiegel Family Foundation Professor of European Jewish History, Tel Aviv University, Israel

"These sixteen essays bring fresh research and thoughtful interpretation to the vitality and tension that marked Jewish-Christian interactions in thirteenth-century France. As such, they go to the longer story of European identity marked importantly by how Christians and Jews both, and sometimes together, constituted its social and religious culture. This is a smart set of essays, one a wide variety of scholars will need to read and consult." - John Van Engen, Andrew V. Tackes Professor of History, University of Notre Dame, USA

"In bringing together scholars of medieval Jewry and of medieval Christendom, and so situating Jewish history firmly within its larger social and cultural context, this book deepens our understanding of the medieval Jewish experience. The contributions are of impressive quality and disciplinary breadth, addressing important developments in law, literature, exegesis, art, devotion, polemic, and learning. Jews and Christians in Thirteenth-Century France is a signal contribution." - Sara Lipton, Associate Professor of History, Stony Brook University, SUNY, USA
