English summary: Between 1706 and 1708, the University of Greifswald theology professor and General Superintendent of Swedish Pomerania Johann Friedrich Mayer commissioned a young Jewish convert to Christianity named Christoph Wallich to set up a 'teaching Synagogue' in his vast private library. Auctioned off after Mayer's death in 1712, this most peculiar of synagogues then made its way via Leipzig to the Dresden Zwinger, where it was on view until 1836 as part of the "Juden-Cabinets" in the Wallpavillon. While all physical trace of the synagogue disappeared for good soon thereafter, Wallich's thrice-published description, "Die Mayerische Synagoga in Greiffswalde," has preserved its memory down to the present. Die Mayersche Lehrsynagoge in Greifswald, the result of original archival research and careful textual study, brings together for the first time all known information concerning the Mayer Synagogue and places it in its historical, cultural, and theological context. It also reprints Wallich's treatise for the first time since the early eighteenth century and offers the first ever commentary on this invaluable presentation of Jewish liturgy and practice. Documenting in detail a fascinating, little-known episode of German-Jewish history, this volume will be of interest to scholars of Jewish studies, German studies, and Jewish-Christian relations. German description: Zwischen 1706 und 1708 richtete der Greifswald Theologieprofessor und Generalsuperintendent von Schwedisch-Pommern, Johann Friedrich Mayer (1650-1712), in seinem Haus eine "Lehr-Synagoge" ein. Diese Installation, die von dem Judaeus conversus Christoph Wallich ausgefuhrt wurde, war zugleich Teil einer umfangreichen Bibliothek. Nach Mayers Tod 1712 gelangte diese 'Synagoge' auf zunachst abenteuerlichen Wegen uber Leipzig nach Dresden, wo sie bis 1836 im Wallpavillon des Dresdner Zwingers als Teil eines 'Juden-Cabinets' zu sehen war. Danach verlieren sich ihre Spuren. Eine Schrift Wallichs uber diese 'Lehrsynagoge', die in drei Auflagen erschien und die eine detaillierte Beschreibung enthalt, ist heute das einzige erhaltene Relikt. Der vorliegende Band tragt alle Nachrichten und Spuren dieser 'Mayerschen Synagoge' aufgrund neuer Quellenstudien zusammen und versucht, das Projekt in sein theologie- und kulturgeschichtliches Umfeld einzuordnen. Mit deutsch- und englischsprachigen Beitragen von Dirk Alvermann, Christfried Bottrich, Yaacov Deutsch, Naomi Feuchtwanger-Sarig, Volker Gummelt, Jens Hoppe, Michael Korey, Thomas K. Kuhn, Ruth Langer, Mario Schmelter, Daniel Stein-Kokin, Christoph Wallich und Thomas Willi.
