Born immediately after the First World War, this schools main proponents would develop their ideas about Jewsas well as their socio-political questions at largeagainst the backdrop of Weimar and National Socialist ideologies and politics. While the History of Religions school and Enlightenment theology had been dominant players in New Testament scholarship in Germany prior to the First World War, the war brought a decisive change of perspectives. Form criticism became the dominant school in post-war New Testament scholarship, and the third part of the book discusses how its most prominent representatives related to Jews and Judaism.
