Chapter Summary

This chapter shows how the missionary method employed by Raymond Martin resulted in a process of learning and incorporating from Jews and Judaism. The author chooses a small body of texts from the vast collection of rabbinic texts absorbed by Raymond in the Capistrum and the Pugio: the aggadot and misdrashim related to the rabbinic statement that the Messiah was born on the day of the destruction of the Second Temple. The chapter also describes the implications of Raymonds missionary strategy and the kind of exchange between Christians and Jews connected to it. It submits some results concerning the development from Paul Christian to Raymond Martin and from the Capistrum to the Pugio. As to the advance of the Pugio in relation to the Capistrum, the chapter shows that it lies predominantly in the extension and fuller quotation of rabbinic material and in the reorganization of argument.
