    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 29.95 US$ 23.96

    Scattered throughout the Talmud, the founding document of rabbinic Judaism in late antiquity, can be found quite a few references to Jesus--and they're not flattering.

    Moses Maimonides (1138?1204) supported a concept of the Messiah which was radically new within the Jewish tradition.

    The impact of technology-enhanced mass death in the twentieth century, argues Zachary Braiterman, has profoundly affected the future shape of religious thought.

Commenting on this startling discovery at the time, noted Talmud scholar Daniel Boyarin argued that some Christians will find... more...

  • Maimonides and Spinozaby Joshua Parens

    University of Chicago Press 2012; US$ 30.00

    Until the last century, it was generally agreed that Maimonides was a great defender of Judaism, and Spinoza?as an Enlightenment advocate for secularization?among its key opponents. However, a new scholarly consensus has recently emerged that the teachings of the two philosophers were in fact much closer than was previously thought. In his perceptive... more...

    Wiley 2013; US$ 69.95 US$ 60.62

    This book is a comprehensive account of how the Jews became a diaspora people.
