Research & Reference Book of the Month, September 2011

Keeping with the theme of Judaism, our research & reference book of the month is Gregg Stern’s Philosophy and Rabbinic Culture: Jewish Interpretation and Controversy in Medieval Languedoc. Read this article to learn more...

Philosophy and Rabbinic Culture is a study of the great, and curiously underappreciated, engagement of a Medieval European Jewish community with the philosophic tradition. This lucid description of the Languedocian Jewish community's multigenerational cultivation of - and acculturation to - scientific and philosophic teachings into Judaism fulfils a major desideratum in Jewish cultural history.

This book will be of great interest to scholars and students of Religion, of Judaism in particular, and of Philosophy, History and Medieval Europe, as well as those interested in Jewish-Christian relations.

This book is part of our Routledge Jewish Studies series.
