Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the book and its chapters. The book is divided into six sections. The first entitled Jews and Christians in the Roman-Byzantine Period contains a comprehensive and critical analysis of the models of investigation used in the study of Jewish rabbinic and early Christian texts, taking issue with the accepted presupposition that these can best be understood by presuming historical contact and mutual influence. The second section deals with the Jews and Christians in the Middle Ages. The third section deals with the problems of modernity. The fourth section discusses the ritual and theology in the modern, post-modern and New Ages. The fifth section entitled Art. Artistic creation provides yet another realm for the investigation of interaction between ancient Judaism and early Christianity. The final section is devoted to literature.

Keywords: Christians; Jews; Judaism; middle ages; problems of modernity; Roman-Byzantine period
