Omtale: Jews and the Christian Imagination
This is an analysis of the ancient Christian myth that casts Jews as a witness-people and this myth's presence in contemporary religious discourse. The book treats diverse products of the Christian imagination, including systematic theology, works of fiction and popular writings on biblical prophecy. It demonstrates that the witness-people myth, which was first articulated by Augustine and which determined official attitudes towards Jews in medieval Christendom, remains a powerful force in the Christian imagination.
