The Saint's saints : hagiography and geography in Jerome by Susan Weingarten( )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Saint's Saints presents Jerome's world picture as seen through his saints' Lives. It analyses both his rhetoric and his descriptions of realia, and the way he combines classical, Christian and Jewish sources to re-write the biblical Holy Land as a new and Christian world for his readers."
The sword of Judith : Judith studies across the disciplines by Kevin R Brine( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Book of Judith tells the story of a fictitious Jewish woman beheading the general of the most powerful imaginable army to free her people. The parabolic story was set as an example of how God will help the righteous. Judith's heroic action not only became a validating charter myth of Judaism itself but has also been appropriated by many Christian and secular groupings, and has been an inspiration for numerous literary texts and works of art. It continues to exercise its power over artists, authors and academics and is becoming a major field of research in its own right. The Sword of Judith is the first multidisciplinary collection of essays to discuss representations of Judith throughout the centuries. The collection includes new archival source studies, the translation of unpublished manuscripts, the translation of texts unavailable in English, and Judith images and music
Birkat haMinim : Jews and Christians in conflict in the ancient world by Yaakov Y Teppler( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and German and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HauptbeschreibungOne of the intriguing questions in the study of the period of the re-formation of Judaism after the destruction of the Second Temple is the identity of a group which appears in hundreds of Talmudic sources from those days - the minim. .It is clear that most of these sources reflect different facets of the polemic between Judaism and Christianity, which were both engaged in establishing their identities. This book concentrates mainly on the second century CE, and includes two basic questions: the question of the earliest text of the twelfth blessing of the central Jewish prayer

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Book of Judith tells the story of a fictitious Jewish woman beheading the general of a powerful army to free her people. The parabolic story was set as an example of how God will help the righteous. Judith's heroic action not only became a validating charter myth of Judaism itself but has also been appropriated by many Christian and secular groupings, and has been an inspiration for numerous literary texts and works of art. It continues to exercise its power over artists, authors and academics and is becoming a major field of research in its own right.

Birkat haminim : Jews and Christians in conflict in the ancient world by Yaakov Y Teppler( Book )

"The Minim (i.e. Heretics) is the nickname which was given by the Jewish leaders in the second century CE to Christians in the formative time of these two religions. Yaakov Y. Teppler studies the identity of those Minim and lays a firm foundation for understanding the processes of separation between Judaism and Christianity in this stormy and fascinating period."--BOOK JACKET
