Course Description

The course will examine the complex relationship between the Western Church and the Jews over two millenia. It will analyze ideas and policies regarding Jews as expressed in both elite and popular culture, from theology and canon law to church art and popular preaching. It will also attempt to survey the factors which led to striking changes in attitudes and policy, with emphasis on the interplay of the theological legacy and evolving realities.

Texts

There is no text. I've designed a website which I distribute as a CD-rom to students at the beginning of the course. It's supplemented by readings on Blackboard.
