Chapter Summary

Any controversy literature is given to both an apologetic and polemical dimension: the defense is to be preserved and is intimately linked to the criticism. This observation applies particularly to the writings of religious controversy, with their own issues. From this point of view, those writings were translated into Hebrew, in the Middle Ages in the Christian West, in defense of Judaism. The study of Latin quotations present in medieval Hebrew texts controversy raises some methodological difficulties that take essentially the disparity of the literature. Among the Latin quotations appearing in Hebrew literature of controversy with Christianity, the most numerous is the New Testament. In most cases, critical writing founded in the Christian religion is omnipresent, but it is not uncommon. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Christian religion; Hebrew literature; Judaism; Middle Ages; Latin quotations religious controversy.
