“Exhilarating . . . a scholarly tour de force. The story Nirenberg has to tell is not over.”—Adam Kirsch, Tablet This incisive history upends the complacency that confines anti-Judaism to the ideological extremes in the Western tradition. With deep learning and elegance, David Nirenberg shows how foundational anti-Judaism is to the history of the West. Questions of how we are Jewish and, more critically, how and why we are not have been churning within the Western imagination throughout its history. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans; Christians and Muslims of every period; even the secularists of modernity have used Judaism in constructing their visions of the world. The thrust of this tradition construes Judaism as an opposition, a danger often from within, to be criticized, attacked, and eliminated. The intersections of these ideas with the world of power—the Roman destruction of the Second Temple, the Spanish Inquisition, the German Holocaust—are well known. The ways of thought underlying these tragedies can be found at the very foundation of Western history.

David Nirenberg, international renommierter Spezialist für die Beziehungen der jüdischen, christlichen und islamischen Kulturen in der Geschichte, konzentriert sich in diesem Essay auf die Denkfigur des "Jüdischen" als ein durchgängiges politisches Konzept der abendländischen Geschichte. Im Vordergrund steht nicht das Judentum als historische und gelebte Religion, sondern das Attribut "jüdisch" als Figur des christlichen Denkens. Ohne diese ideengeschichtlichen Traditionen zu kennen, lassen sich weder die Politische Theologie Carl Schmitts verstehen noch die Bilder des Judentums, die Schmitts Theorie hervorbrachte. Auf seiner intellektuellen Reise zeigt Nirenberg an frühchristlichen, mittelalterlichen und modernen Beispielen, wie "Judentum" und "jüdisch" als Vokabeln der politischen Sprache Bedeutung gewonnen haben. So war "jüdisch" in der christlichen Regierungslehre Inbegriff der gefährlichen Attraktion von weltlicher Macht. Karl Marx bezeichnete die Judenemanzipation "in ihrer letzten Konsequenz" als "Emanzipation der Menschheit vom Judentum". Die Beständigkeit und die Verwendungsweisen der Denkfigur des "Jüdischen" sind nach Nirenberg Anlass für ein grundsätzliches Nachdenken über Ideen-, Begriffs- und Diskursgeschichte.

In this magisterial and definitive study, David Nirenberg charts the evolution of anti-Jewish ideas from 1400 BCE to the present day, demonstrating that anti-Semitic tropes have been inherited and refined across centuries. Rather than flaring up at certain times and places, argues Nirenberg, anti-Jewish feeling runs through the entire history of Western thought, and does not even require the presence of Jews in society in order to thrive.

The Qur’an is an orally composed poetical text which Muslims have always known mainly in the form of oral recitation. Western scholarship however has hardly ever read it as literature, on account of the inaccessibility of its structure, and instead has used it mainly to mine theological or legislative statements. Angelika Neuwirth brings order to this supposed chaos by demonstrating meaningful compositional structures for the Makkan suras of the Qur’an. This 2nd edition has been extended to include a new study which examines the suras as pointing to a historical development in the preaching of the Qur’an and the formation of a community.

After the breakdown of civilization during the Holocaust, Shakespeare s Merchant of Venice quickly regained its traditional position at the forefront of the West German theater scene. Despite or indeed due to the fact that the piece exhibits problematic constructions of Jewishness in the figure of the money-lender Shylock, it became an important reference point and medium of difficult debates regarding the problem of German hate and German guilt. This volume discusses important stations of this contradictory reception history from the perspective of English and German studies, theater studies and commemorative history research."
