This volume deals with the friars, especially the Franciscans and Dominicans, in their writing and preaching about Jews and Judaism in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. The articles deal with such issues as Jews and Judaism in theology, biblical exegesis, apocalyptic thought, preaching, economics and art. Building on the pioneering work of Jeremy Cohen, this volume shows the complexity of Christian-Jewish relations in the life and writings of the mendicants on the eve of the modern world. It will be a useful volume for understanding medieval interreligious understanding and how Christians thought of Jews during the era in question.Table of ContentsAbbot Joachim of Fiore and the conversion of the Jews The antichrist and the Jews in four thirteenth-century apocalypse commentaries Archbishop Eudes Rigaud and the Jews of Normandy, 1248-1275 Intimate enemies: mendicant-Jewish interaction in thirteenth-century Mediterranean Spain Jews and Judaism in Peter Auriol's Sentences commentary Franciscan economics and Jews in the Middle ages: from a theological to an economic lexicon Contempt for friars and contempt for Jews in late medieval Germany The evolution of Francesc Eiximenis's attitudes toward Judaism Samuel of Granada and the Dominican inquisitor: Jewish magic and Jewish heresy in post-1391 Valencia Leonardo Dati's sermon on the circumcision of Jesus (1417) Alfonso de Espina on the Mosaic law Anti-Jewish preaching in the fifteenth century and images of preachers in Italian Renaissance art Jews, Franciscans, and the first Monti di Pieta in Italy (1462-1500) Papal mendicants or mendicant popes: continuity and change in papal policies toward the Jews at the end of the fifteenth century The friars and the Jews: messianism in Spain and Italy circa 1500 Limpieza versus mission: church, religious orders, and conversion in the sixteenth century
