Description

Martin Luther's viciously anti-Jewish pamphlet, Vom Schem Hampboras , presented here in its original German and its first-ever English translation, is but one of the many sources translated here for the first time from Latin, Hebrew and German. This study reviews the earliest Christian writings concerning the Jews and shows how Christian synods and influential theologians legitimised and reinforced hatred of the Jewish people. The book also examines the modern attempts in Protestant and Catholic theology to promote friendship toward the Jewish people.
