Jewish-Christian Encounters in Early Modern Europe: Three Case Studies

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

In the 1600s, a Dutch Christian scholar named Willem Surenhusius published the first complete translation of the entire Mishna in Latin.

A century prior, an Italian Jew named Abraham Yagel created a “Jewish catechism” copied from the standard Catholic version and then published in Hebrew.

On Sunday, January 16, join the National Library of Israel for a look at some remarkable moments of interaction between Jews and Christians in the early modern period.

The lecture is a part of “Jews and Christians through the Centuries: Communities in Conflict and Contact”, a series from the National Library of Israel.
