Reviews

"The singular focus of Jewish Culture in Early Modern Europe is itself a major contribution to Jewish studies, as well as a fitting homage to David Ruderman. This thoroughly engaging volume bears the fruit of Ruderman's original findings in his studies of early modern Jewish history. It will surely be a sought-after book that will stand alongside his own Early Modern Jewry." --David N. Myers, UCLA "Open any essay in this book, and you will be dazzled by the brilliance of the scholarship and depth of thought that has gone into every one of them. Nothing less would have been a fitting tribute to David Ruderman, who has revitalized and reshaped our understanding of early modern Jewish and European culture through his own research and writing and his unparalleled intellectual generosity of spirit." --Lynn Hunt, UCLA "Through his remarkable publications and celebrated seminars, David Ruderman has brought us a new understanding of the cultural and social history of the Jews and, indeed, of Europe in general in early modern times. These essays, each one a jewel, carry his powerful vision into many lands and multiple tongues. We meet fascinating people and books but are also shaken up in our ideas about identity, networks, conversion, and modernity itself. An absorbing book of enduring importance." --Natalie Zemon Davis, University of Toronto "Those interested to learn where the scholarship of the early modern period in Jewish history has ventured, and more significantly, where it is headed, can do no better than to peruse this dazzling collection of essays. Assembled to honor one of the leading scholars of early modern Jewish history, the essays reflect the dynamism and complexity of a people in transition in a period of religious ferment, intellectual innovation, and geographical mobility. From the Ottoman Empire to Eastern Europe, from Venice to Prague to Amsterdam and the New World, the borderlines of Jewish identity intersect ever more closely with those of Christian and Muslim partners and interlocutors in these erudite studies of books, of their makers, of ideas and their circulation, of the period and its character. This collection is a magnificent tribute to a scholar and a monumental contribution to scholarship." --Elisheva Carlebach, Columbia University The singular focus of "Jewish Culture in Early Modern Europe "is itself a major contribution to Jewish studies, as well as a fitting homage to David Ruderman.
