Synopsis

Hyam Maccoby's now classic study focuses on the

major Jewish-Christian disputations of medieval Europe: those of Paris (1240),

Barcelona (1263), and Tortosa (1413-14). It examines the content of these

theological confrontations with a sense of present-day relevance, while also

discussing the use made of scriptural proof-texts. Part I provides a general

thematic consideration of the three disputations and their social and

historical background. Part II is a complete translation of the account of the

Barcelona Disputation written by Nahmanides, one of the greatest figures in the

history of Jewish learning, and was Jewish spokesman at the disputation. Part

III contains Jewish and Christian accounts of the Paris and Tortosa

disputations.





A new introduction reviews the relevant

literature that has been published since the original edition appeared.
