Description: These essays examine the ways in which Jewish culture has existed in a mutually enriching, if sometimes problematic, relationship with surrounding non-Jewish cultures. Leading scholars in Judaic studies take up broad methodological concerns and specific case studies illustrating Jewish embeddedness in other cultures and re-examining the famous “textuality” of the Jews, expanding the notion of “text” to include other works of art, both material and spiritual.

Subjects: Methods, Historical Approaches, History, History of Judaism
