Jewish Traditions in Early Christian Literature, Volume 2 Jewish Historiography and Iconography in Early and Medieval Christianity

The Jewish ancestry of Christianity is not merely a matter of religious sentiment but the object of scholarly research. One of the aims of this series is to analyze how Jewish cultural elements were assimilated by and adapted to the needs of the arising new religion. This volume contains two separate studies. Heinz Schreckenberg shows how successive Christian authors turned Josephus' description of the downfall of Jerusalem into a confirmation of Christian superiority. Next he demonstrates how this view of the Jewish historian and his works appears in medieval Christian illustrations. In another contribution, Kurt Schubert discusses the existence of a Jewish pictorial tradition and its influence on early Christian art. Such influence was all the more likely where Christian artists were unaware of potential conflicts of the Jewish iconography with Christian doctrine.
