A Jewish Messiah: Tale of a Convincing Imposter, 1666

Hosted By: The Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University

A messiah is usually understood to be a human agent sent by God to save or redeem people. While Christians expect Jesus’ Second Coming, the Jews too expect a messiah. Various contenders for this position have appeared over the millennia. Among the most famous was Shabbatai Zevi, whose influence was felt by Jews across the Ottoman Empire in 1665-1666. This lecture explores the historical and religious context that made Shabbatai such a believable Jewish messianic figure.
