DescriptionFor centuries, the Jewish population of Europe has been subjected to dehumanization. Studies of European history, culture, and religion often assume that anti-Semitism is a specifically Christian phenomenon. This study sketches the historical background of anti-Semitism and extensively examines publications of the Institutum Judaicum in Halle as well as other pertinent archival materials, endeavoring to delineate some of the key people - particularly Johann Heinrich Callenberg - and how they contributed to rehumanizing the Jews.
About AuthorDr. Dowdey is Professor of German Language and Literature at Pepperdine University.
