"I have always loved the holy tongue" : Isaac Casaubon, the Jews, and a forgotten chapter in Renaissance scholarship by Anthony Grafton( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fusing high scholarship with high drama, Anthony Grafton and Joanna Weinberg uncover a secret and extraordinary aspect of a legendary Renaissance scholar's already celebrated achievement. The French Protestant Isaac Casaubon (1550-1614) is known to us through his pedantic namesake in George Eliot's Middlemardz. But in this book, the real Casaubon emerges as a genuine literary hero, an intrepid explorer in the world of books, With a flair for storytelling reminiscent of Umberto ken, Grafton and Weinberg follow Casaubon as he unearths the lost continent of Hebrew learning and adds this ancient lore to the well known Renaissance revival of Latin and Greek
The light of the eyes by Azariah ben Moses dei Rossi( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an annotated translation of the pioneering Hebrew work of Azariah de' Rossi, an outstanding figure in the history of Jewish scholarship. First printed in Mantua in 1573, the book established the foundations of critical Jewish historiography." "The book contains innovative studies on a wide range of subjects, including chronology, the origins of the Septuagint, the antiquity of the Hebrew language, and the nature of biblical poetry. De' Rossi lends unprecedented attention to the evidence of Josephus while his critique of Philo of Alexandria was the first attempt to assess the Jewish status of this Hellenistic philosopher. The hallmark of his work is the presentation of arguments drawn from an impressive array of diverse sources ranging from the texts of rabbinic tradition to Augustine and to Pico della Mirandola. His critical approach to rabbinic texts and his demonstration that the Jewish creation-era calendar was a late, post-Talmudic invention generated controversy that at one time led to a ban on the book. Familiar with the works of contemporary Catholics and Protestants, de' Rossi was also a mediator between Jewish and Christian scholarship, clarifying problems posed by Jewish tradition in relation to non-Jewish evidence, while signaling the importance of Jewish sources for the topics discussed by his non-Jewish neighbors."--Jacket

Jewish books and their readers : aspects of the intellectual life of Christians and Jews in early modern Europe( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jewish Books and their Readers discusses the transformative effect of the circulation and readership of sacred and secular texts written by Jews on Christian as well as Jewish readers in early modern Europe. Its twelve essays challenge traditional paradigms of Christian Hebraism and undermine simplistic visions of the unchanging nature of Jewish cultural life.They ask what constituted a 'Jewish' book: how it was presented, disseminated, and understood within both Jewish and Christian environments (and how its meanings were contested), and what effect such understanding had on contemporary views of Jews and their intellectual heritage. They demonstrate how the involvement of Christians in the production and dissemination of Jewish books played a role in the shaping of the intellectual life of Jews and Christians. Contributors are: Michela Andreatta, Andrew Berns, Theodor Dunkelgrün, Federica Francesconi, Anthony Grafton Alessandro Guetta, William Horbury, Yosef Kaplan, Scott Mandelbrote, Piet van Boxel, Joanna Weinberg Benjamin Williams"--
