Schwerpunkt/Special Issue: Early Modern Culture and Haskalah

Yearbook: Volume 6, 2007

The thematic focus of the 2007 volume lies on the study of early modern Jewish lifeworlds, especially the tension between tradition and burgeoning modernity. This is particularly visible in the attitudes and reactions of the Jews. It is the very diversity of Jewish lifeworlds – geographic and topographic as well as linguistic and cultural – that led through developments like printing to an increase in inner-Jewish communications and thus to the recognition of commonalities and differences.

This volume is augmented by contributions addressing the modernization of Judaism from the late eighteenth century into the present day, as well as by the categories »Aus der Forschung«, »Gelehrtenporträt«, »Dubnowiana«, and »Literaturbericht«.
