Title: Gottes Sprache in der philologischen Werkstatt
Subtitle: Hebraistik vom 15. bis zum 19. Jahrhundert
Written By: G. Veltri

Series Title: Studies in Jewish History and Culture
Description:

The study of the Hebrew language in Protestant Europe initiated the
development of modern philology. Christian theology and Jewish tradition
fostered Christian Hebraism, which functioned as a catalyst for many
subjects in the humanities. This volume presents the results of a
conference held in Wittenberg in October 2002. It evaluates the history of
Christian Hebraism, from Jewish grammatical works up to the Hebrew training
of Protestant missionaries. Prominent figures like Ludwig Geiger and
Hermann L. Strack as well as different centres of Hebrew learning from
Basel to Groningen are described in detail in fourteen essays. They focus
on the influence of Humanism, Kabbalah and the renewed discussions about
the philosophical works of Maimonides.
