Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Since antiquity Jews are accused to have forged the text of the Hebrew Bible to suppress its true message. Christians and Muslims employed this stereotype broadly in antisemitic polemics against Jews. This seminar will not only trace the history of this polemic from antiquity until today but wants to also to ask what motivated them and how they can be fought.
