A Translation of the Magen Wa-Hereb by Leon Modena, 1571-1648

£250.00

Product description

The focus of this work is Leon Modena's polemic masterpiece, the "Magen Wa-Hereb" ("Shield and Sword"). It seeks to make this important document in Jewish polemical thought - subtitled "Christianity Through a Rabbi's Eyes" - available to students of comparative religion and persons interested in inter-religious relations. Modena's work is a nuanced text, written with wit and charm. This translation aims to avoid a wooden rendering, being faithful to the original, and trying to bring the reader as close as possible to the feeling of the original as well as to its sense. This edition includes an introduction by Ellis Rivkin and photographs of Venice Ghetto

This copy is as-new inside with some very light denting on the bottom edge of the spine.
