Comprehending and Confronting Antisemitism
A Multi-Faceted Approach
Ed. by Lange, Armin / Mayerhofer, Kerstin / Porat, Dina / Schiffman, Lawrence H.
Aims and Scope
This volume provides a compendium of the history of and discourse about antisemitism - both as a unique cultural and religious category. Antisemitic stereotypes function as religious symbols that express and transmit a belief system of Jew-hatred, which are stored in the cultural and religious memories of the Western and Muslim worlds, migrating freely between Christian, Muslim and other religious symbolic systems.
