Persecution, Polemic, and Dialogue
Persecution, Polemic, and Dialogue follows the interaction between Jews and Christians through the ages in all its richness, complexity, and diversity. This collection of essays analyzes antisemitism, perceptions of the Other, and religious debates in the Middle Ages, and proceeds to consider modern and contemporary interactions, which are marked by both striking continuity and profound difference. These include controversies among historians, the promise and challenge of interfaith dialogue, and the explosive exchanges surrounding Mel Gibson's film on the Passion. This volume will engage scholars, students, and any reader intrigued by one of the longest and most fraught inter-group relationships in history.
