Philosophy and Rabbinic Culture is a study of the great, and curiously underappreciated, engagement of a Medieval European Jewish community with the philosophic tradition.

Philosophy and Rabbinic Culture is a study of the great, and curiously underappreciated, engagement of a Medieval European Jewish community with the philosophic tradition. This lucid description of the Languedocian Jewish community's multigenerational cultivation of - and acculturation to - scientific and philosophic teachings into Judaism fulfils a major desideratum in Jewish cultural history.

Gregg Stern holds a PhD in medieval Jewish studies from Harvard University. If this book weren't worth studying for any other reason, it would still be worth studying for its treatment of the battle over the public teaching of philosophy in Languedoc.

Gregg Stern places the Meiri in his historical context, finding thinkers both Jewish and Christian whose views mirrored or anticipated those of the Meiri. He illuminates the philosophical assumptions that provide the foundations for the rabbi’s innovations

Gregg Stern places the Meiri in his historical context, finding thinkers both Jewish and Christian whose views mirrored or anticipated those of the Meiri. He illuminates the philosophical assumptions that provide the foundations for the rabbi’s innovations. Meiri played only a minor role in this controversy, but it does provide a vivid backdrop to understanding the intellectual world in which Rabbi Menahem lived.

Philosophy and Rabbinic Culture is a study of the great, and curiously underappreciated, engagement of a Medieval European Jewish community with the philosophic tradition. This lucid description of the Languedocian Jewish community's multigenerational cultivation of - and acculturation to - scientific and philosophic teachings into Judaism fulfils a major desideratum in Jewish cultural history.

In the first detailed account of this long-forgotten Jewish community and its cultural ideal, the author gives an expansive reappraisal of the role of the philosophic interpretation in rabbinic culture and medieval Judaism. Looking at how the cultural ideal of Languedocian Jewry continued to develop and flourish throughout the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, with particular reference to the literary style and religious teaching of the great Talmudist, Menahem ha-Meiri, Stern explores issues such as Meiri’s theory of "civilized religions", including Christianity and Islam, controversy over philosophy and philosophic allegory in Languedoc and Catalonia, and the cultural significance of the medical use of astrological images.

This book will be of great interest to scholars and students of Religion, of Judaism in particular, and of Philosophy, History and Medieval Europe, as well as those interested in Jewish-Christian relations.
