Summaries
Main Description
In this book, internationally renowned historians from Germany, Israel, Hungary, the U.S. and the Netherlands reconstruct the biography and intellectual development of the rabbi and historian Abraham Geiger (18101874). The focus is on Geiger's intellectual defense of Judaism's right to exist, his efforts for a modernizing reform of the Jewish communities as well as his interpretation of the relationship of Judaism to Christianity and Islam, which is also important for the current interreligious dialogue.
