    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    In this book, internationally renowned historians reconstruct the biography and intellectual development of the rabbi and historian Abraham Geiger (1810–1874). The focus is on Geiger’s intellectual defense of Judaism’s right to exist, his efforts for a modernizing reform of the Jewish communities as well as his interpretation of the relationship of Judaism to Christianity and Islam, which is also important for the current interreligious dialogue.

    „Ein Sammelband darf nur bedingt am Kriterium der Vollständigkeit gemessen werden. Jedoch bietet dieser Band, in den Bereichen, auf die er sich konzentriert, ausschliesslich Texte – sehr umsichtig präsentiert – auf hohem und höchstem Niveau."
    Ottfried Fraisse in: JUDAICA 1/2016
