About this Item

8vo; aprox 400 pages; First edition. Original boards. 8vo. Geiger (1848-1919), was a German literary historian and a "fervent adherent of assimilation. Son of Abraham Geiger, he studied at his father's Hochschule in Berlin and concluded his academic studies with a dissertation, presented to Leopold yon Ranke, on the attitude of Greek and Roman authors to Judaism and Jews. In 1880 he was appointed professor of German literature and cultural history at Berlin University. Geiger was a versatile scholar, editor, and translator. His major contributions were to Renaissance, Humanism, and Reformation studies, German-Jewish history, and research on Goethe. Even when treating the first and last subjects he remained particularly conscious of the Jewish aspect. Founder and editor of Zeitschrift fuer die Geschichte der Juden in Deutschland (1887-92), he also wrote Geschichte der Juden in Berlin (2 vols., 1871), Die deutsche Literatur und die Juden (1910), and numerous articles on German Jewish history. he also wrote on Goethe's relationship to Jews and Judaism. Geiger edited his father's Nachgelassene Schriften (5 vols., 1875-78) and other works; he also wrote a biography of his father, Abraham Geiger, Leben und Lebenswerk (with others, 1910).Geiger was a vigorous exponent of liberalism and Reform Judaism and an opponent of political Zionism. In 1911, in his birthday letter to the kaiser, he courageously protested against the social discrimination to which German Jews were subjected. From 1909 he edited the leading Jewish newspaper, Allgemeine Zeitung des Judentums. His unpublished works include a projected edition of the correspondence of Leopold Zunz" (Rudolf Kayser in EJ).
