About this title
This important study provides a paraphrase of the Christian accounts of the meetings between rabbis and clerics, and a complete translation of the Hebrew accounts of the disputations at Barcelona and Torotsa (the latter from the Shevet Yehudah). Maccoby fully describes the historical and social background, giving insight into the use by both sides of scriptural proof-texts.About the Author:
The late Hyam Maccoby was Emeritus Fellow of the Leo Baeck College, London, and Visiting Professor of Jewish Studies at the University of Leeds from 1998 until his death. He published many books and articles on rabbinic literature, Jewish-Christian relations, Christian origins, and the origins of antisemitism. Among his writings are Revolution in Judaea (1980), The Sacred Executioner (1982), The Mythmaker (1986, second edition 1998), Early Rabbinic Writings (1988), Judas Iscariot and the Myth of Jewish Evil (1992), awarded the Wingate Prize, A Pariah People: The Anthropology of Antisemitism (1996), and Ritual and Morality: The Ritual Purity System and its Place in Judaism (1999).
