Dialogue against the Jews by Petrus Alfonsi( )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 1,871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Petrus Alfonsi's Dialogue Against the Jews (ca. 1109) breaks new ground in the history of Christian anti-Jewish polemics. As a recent convert from Judaism, Alfonsi introduced an intimate knowledge of Jewish literature and contemporary practice absent from earlier Christian sources. This knowledge enabled him to attack for the first time the Talmud (or, more broadly, post-biblical Jewish literature) as a source of Jewish error, with arguments drawn from philosophy and theology, astronomy, medicine, and physics. Equally important, Alfonsi's Dialogue contains an extensive anti-Muslim polemic to explain not only why he abandoned Judaism but also why he rejected Islam and chose the Christian faith." "Never before translated into English, this work presents to the reader perhaps the most important source for an intensifying medieval Christian-Jewish debate."--Jacket

Diálogo contra los judíos by Petrus Alfonsi( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edition of an antisemitic tract by Petrus Alfonsi, a synagogue preacher in Aragón, who was baptized in 1106 in Huesca, and later emigrated to France and England. The introduction by Tolan (p. ix-lvii) relates that Petrus Alfonsi's polemic against Judaism became famous and authoritative. His books, widely read and quoted, were an important instrument in the struggle against Judaism during the Middle Ages. He tried to demonstrate that only Christendom was in harmony with the principles of reason, that Jewish tradition had a heretical character, being a deviation from the original laws written in the Bible. He focused his attacks on the Talmud and on rabbinical literature in general, criticizing their lack of scientific knowledge. He believed that through argumentation and reason it was possible to convince Jews to renounce their religion. During the 13th century the Dominicans carried out their missionary work based on his points of view
