About this Item

Clothbound. 8vo. 391, 486 pages. 24 cm. First edition. In German. The "Collected Essays" of Ludwid Philippson. Two volumes bound in red cloth with gilt lettering. These two volumes constitute the collected published writings in various periodicals of Ludwig Philippson (1811 1889) , who "achieved renown as the founder of the Allgemeine Zeitung des Judenthums (AZJ, 1837 1922) , which he edited until his death. Ludwig was an avid student of both Hebrew and classical literature in Dessau and Halle. After graduation from Berlin University (1829 33) , aged 22, he took up the position of a preacher and teacher in the Magdeburg Jewish community. Though following the practice of Reform Judaism he preached in German and introduced the organ and the rite of confirmation he tried to steer a middle course between Reform and Orthodoxy . He was among the initiators of the Rabbinical Conferences of Brunswick (1844) , Frankfurt/Main (1845) , and Breslau (1846) , but was critical of their decisions. One of his projects was the establishment of a modern institution for training scholars, rabbis, and teachers. From 1834 Philippson started editing several periodicals, first the monthly Israelitisches Predigt- und Schulmagazin (1834 36) , followed by his famous AZJ, the most important Jewish weekly of the 19th century, which was also dedicated to the struggle for emancipation in all parts of Germany and Europe and fought discrimination and antisemitism. From 1839 53, he published a popular translation and commentary of the Bible, which went through three editions, together with a revised edition illustrated by Gustav Doré (1875) . Along with I. M. Jost , A. Jellinek , and others he founded the Institut zur Foerderung der Israelitischen Literatur (1854 73) , whose main achievement was the publication of H. Graetz 's Geschichte der Juden (1853 76) . In 1862, he had to resign as rabbi of Magdeburg because he had become almost blind. He moved to Bonn, where he continued his journalistic and literary work until his death. He was among the founders of the Israelitische Bibelanstalt (1862) , the Deutsch-Israelitischer Gemeindebund (1869) , and the Hochschule fuer die Wissenschaft des Judentums (1872) . " (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) The second volume includes an appendix, that of an essay by Rabbi Hermann Cohen on the importance of the writings of the young Ludwig Philippson. Subjects: Judaism.
