Jews and Christians in the Life and Thought of Hugh of St. Victor (Studies in the History of Judaism) by Rebecca Moore



This book examines the Christian theology of Judaism developed by Hugh of St. Victor in the twelfth century, and contributes to an understanding of the more positive views among medieval Christians of both biblical and contemporary Jews and Judaism. Jewish and Christian relations were not uniformly hostile in medieval Europe. The Augustinian canon attempted to include Jews in God's plan of creation and redemption, even as Christian triumphalism ultimately prevailed through the Middle Ages. Students and scholars with interests in Jewish and Christian relations, or Christian biblical studies in medieval Europe, will benefit from reading this book.
