A history of the Jews : from earliest times through the six day war by Cecil Roth( Book )

148 editions published between 1746 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 2,901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New standard Jewish encyclopedia by Cecil Roth( Book )

90 editions published between 1958 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 1,998 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The New Standard Jewish Encyclopedia is intended basically as a work of contemporary reference. No comparable work has appeared since before World War II, and during this interval three major events have occurred in Jewish history : the destruction of European Jewry, the establishment of the State of Israel, and the emergence of the United States as the outstanding Diaspora community. This work therefore throws special stress on these recent historic developments, although at the same time covering every phase of Jewish life, literature, and thought from their beginning. Particular attention is paid to the American community and its outstanding figures and to the twin pole of modern Jewish life, the State of Israel and the men who are shaping its development. The subject matter includes prominent Jews from the earliest times down to the present, non-Jews who have made a major impression on Jewish history and scholarship, the history of the Jews in all countries and towns where they have settled in number, summaries of Jewish history, literature, religion, philosophy, etc., the leading concepts of Jewish law, Jewish customs, festivals, and institutions, and general articles on a variety of topics relating to Jewish history and the Jewish way of life. - Preface

"An account of the origins and fate of those Spanish Jews who -- terrorized by the massacre of 1391 and the Inquisition -- professed Christianity to escape persecution."--Cover
The Spanish Inquisition by Cecil Roth( Book )

41 editions published between 1937 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History abounds in "private inquisitors" who took the lives of heretics from time to time in an excess of religious zeal, but no other organization for religious persecution ever equaled the Spanish Inquisition in intensity, scope, or efficiency of operation. In 1478 Pope Sixtus IV issued the fatal Bull empowering the Spanish sovereigns to set up tribunals to extirpate heresy within their realms, and from then until its abolishment in 1834 the Inquisition pursued a career of blood whose goal was no less than the destruction of every person who was not a true Roman Catholic Christian. First and foremost this meant Jews, but the Holy Office later expanded its range of victims to include Protestants, mystics, and nonconformists of every sort. The long series of events leading up to the establishment of the Inquisition and the following three and a half centuries of torment that spread from Spain to Portugal and even to the New World are here documented by Cecil Roth of Oxford, one of the world's great authorities on Jewish history. The text is illustrated with documents and prints from the author's private collection, and two appendices provide the text of an actual "program" of an auto da fe as well as excerpts from a specific trial. - Back cover

He aquí la saga de una nación que soportó siglos de guerras, revoluciones, dispersión, persecuciones, y pese a todo, logró mantener su identidad. El texto, lúcidamente escrito, está vívidamente ilustrado por una exuberante documentación gráfica. La palabra y la imagen se combian así para registrar los extraordinarios acontecimientos que marcan la evolución de un pueblo, cuya historia está íntimamente entretejida con el desarrollo de la civilización occidental. Nos es dado seguir sus huellas desde los días de Abraham a través de la esclavitud y el despertar en Egipto: somos testigos de la conquista de la "Tierra de leche y miel", del esplendor de los días del Reino, bajo David y Salomón, su caída, el exilio de Babilonia, para llegar a la destrucción del Templo de Jerusalén por los romanos. La subsiguiente dispersión del pueblo judío entre los países del Imperio Romano tuvo un profundo efecto, no sólo en su propi historia sino también en la vida intelectual y cultural de Europa, especialmente en los comienzos de la Edad Media. Actuaba como eslabón entre el mundo de la antigüedad clásica y las nuevas naciones que surgían en el Norte. Las Cruzadas trajeron la persecución de los judíos, su expulsión de ciudades y países, su existencia en los ghettos, su intensa concentración en su herencia religiosa y el horísmo en la defensa de su fe. La era del iluminismo trajo consigo la emancipación de los judíos y la liberación de un gran potencial de energías que estuvieron latentes a través de varias generaciones. El surgimiento reciente del Estado de Israel es la culminación de la urgencia de sobrevivir y de un sentido de destino, que fue el rasgo característico del pueblo judío a través de su larga y singular historia. Se trata de un relato de fascinante interés, que arroja luz sobre pasajes de la historia occidental que por mucho tiempo fueron sólo accesibles al estudioso especializado
