This publication is the first contribution to the study of Jewish-Greek cultural relations in Greek. This is perhaps the first time that the age-old spiritual conversation between the Jews and Greeks has been systematically analysed with reference to the available evidence, from the theological and historical perspective of a Greek Rabbi, with sensitivity and respect for both traditions.

  • Product Description

    Hebrew studies are based on the Biblical and Talmudic interpretive tradition. This volume analyses the age-old spiritual conversation between the Jews and Greeks who established the spiritual and cultural foundations of Western civilization, each people regarding themselves as unique and pioneering.

    Ever since the time of Alexander the Great, Jews and Greeks have met and discussed philosophy and theology together. Rather than diminishing these two great traditions, each enriched the other. In this publication this subject is, perhaps for the first time, systematically examined with reference to the available evidence, with sensitivity and respect for both traditions as viewed from the theological and historical perspective of a Greek Rabbi.
