Chapter Summary

Disputation or dispute could be stated as one possible meaning of the word dialogue, which occurs in Augustine and throughout the Middle Ages glossaries. Dialogue writers sometimes have staged a discussion as war of words, even a duel. Modern research brings these debates mainly from other writings dialogues, teaching dialogues, and classroom dialogues. These texts can be classified into three types: Streitgesprache between teachers and Schuler, asymmetric and symmetric Streitgesprache. This chapter first discusses the debates with Jews and heretics, focusing on a Panorama of the anti-Jewish dialogue in the 11th and 12th centuries. Then, it discusses the inter-Christian debates. The chapter concludes with an overview of the entire type argument in the Late Middle Ages in which clarifies two common characteristics of the debates. The fundamental differences between the subtypes are then summarized. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: anti-Jewish dialogue; inter-Christian debates; Streitgespräche; war of words
