REL 32.06 Jewish Views of Christianity

Historians know a great deal about anti-Semitism, but this course will reverse the gaze and examine Jewish views of Christianity. When and why did Judaism and Christianity divide? We will read ancient Jewish versions of the Gospels, medieval Jewish polemics, and Jewish appropriations of Christian imagery. We’ll conclude with modern Jewish scholarship on Christian origins, as well as Jewish responses to Christianity in light of the Holocaust and the post-war efforts at ecumenical relations.
