The intense interest in the Hebrew language during the Renaissance was based on more than linguistic consideration alone, but was part of a much larger religious and cultural framework. This volume is a collection of articles by European scholars on this subject, mostly French, in an attempt to look at many of the diverse aspects of Hebrew during the early modern period.

The many ways in which the two major religious movements of the Reformation and the Counter Reformation - the Protestant and the Catholic - were diffused are brought forth through individual and collective efforts in the fields of the arts, literature, education, liturgy and rituals, preaching, propaganda, debates and polemics. The authors of this volume have used methods of cultural history, historical anthropology, history of communications, and micro-history to reveal a common source in the methods of propaganda, with the emphasis on what is inherent to the religious catholic sensibilities on the one hand, and the protestant view of the world on the other.

L'Antisémitisme Éclairé

Inclusion et Exclusion depuis l'Époque des Lumières jusqu'à l'Affaire Dreyfus / Inclusion and Exclusion: Perspectives on Jews from the Enlightenment to the Dreyfus Affair

Edited by Ilana Zinguer and Sam Bloom

This volume principally deals with perceptions on Jews dating from the beginnings of their emancipation to the Dreyfus Affair. The title in French, and the original title of the colloquium in Hebrew, ‘Enlightened Antisemitism’ not only reflects the overall anti-religious (anti-Christian and, hence, by necessity, anti-Jewish) sentiments of an Enlightenment figure such as Voltaire, but also refers to those who justified either their philosemitism or antisemitism with erudition: Johann David Michaelis, Antoine Guénée, Charles Maurras, etc. With France as its focal point, the volume also contains essays that treat various perceptions of Jews during the same period in England, Germany, and Italy. Interdisciplinary in nature, this collection of essays treats the Jewish question from historical, literary, and sociological angles.
