Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Already the earliest layers of the New Testament show that Christianity formed its identity in distinction from ancient Judaism. To distinguish themselves from ancient Judaism, the early Christians employed antisemitic polemics. At the latest since the fourth century CE, Christian persecutions of Jews can be observed which correspond to these antisemitic polemics. The course will investigate the roots of early Christian antisemitism as well as its development in antiquity.
