Jewish Difference and the Parish Priest: A 14th-Century German Guide to Christian-Jewish Coexistence

March 18, 2015 $10.00

Medieval European Jews were highly integrated into majority society and culture, but they were also partially marginalized. With little warning, Jews living peacefully among Christian neighbors could suddenly find themselves the target of violence. In the aftermath of Plague-related violence against Jews in Southern Germany, a popular German guidebook for parish priests tried to put the brakes on anti-Jewish violence, outlining a path toward peaceful coexistence. How does the existence of such a work affect the way we understand the history of the Jewish experience in Europe? Deeana Klepper, associate professor of religion at Boston University, leads the discussion. Part of “Celebrating 20 Years of Me’ah: Cutting-Edge Conversations,” a series of lectures marking two decades of Hebrew College’s signature adult-learning program.
