Chapter Summary

The majority of Jewish Christians themselves were content to worship in a Gentile milieu and few charismatic individuals emerged as founders of independent Hebrew Christian institutions. Historians have recently begun to question whether the concept of antisemitism is adequate. One of the dominant themes of history between 1800 and 1900 was Jewish emancipation, the movement that brought Jews out of the autonomous community of traditional Jewry and into the modern state as individuals, free yet insecure. The concept of conversion in nineteenth-century Britain encompassed not only a change of belief but also one of social adaptation.

Keywords: Antisemitism; Hebrew; Jewish Christians; nineteenth century
