Presented by the Melton Center for Jewish Studies at The Ohio State University and JCC Bookfair
Deborah R. and Edgar D. Jannotta Professor of Medieval History and Social Thought
University of Chicago
Professor Nirenberg will discuss his latest book, “Anti-Judaism: The Western Tradition,” a powerful history from ancient Egypt to the 20th century that shows anti-Judaism to be a central way of thinking in the Western tradition. From ancient times to modernity, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Christians, Muslims and secularists used Judaism in constructing their visions of the world, which construes Judaism as an opposition, a danger often from within, to be criticized, attacked, and eliminated. Join us for this fascinating topic.
