The rise and fall of Jewish nationalism by Doron Mendels( Book )

21 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in English and held by 822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This superior account of the development of Jewish nationalism offers one of those rare glimpses into the past that can truly illuminate the present. In The Rise and Fall of Jewish Nationalism Doron Mendels combines his unique insight into ancient Palestine with a careful analysis of historical and literacy sources, from Josephus to New Testament apocrypha, to explore the development of Jewish nationalism within the context of the Hellenistic world. Originally published as part of the Anchor Bible Reference Library, this study is of interest not only for its brilliant discussion of Jewish nationalism during the Second Temple period but also because its subject matter echoes the thorny questions raised by the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks of today
The media revolution of early Christianity : Eusebius's Ecclesiastical history by Doron Mendels( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study by respected historian Doron Mendels attempts to understand the literary genre of Eusebius's The Ecclesiastical History, by situating it in the broader context of ancient historiography and by applying the analytical tools of modern media studies.What type of history writing does The Ecclesiastical History represent? Were Eusebius's aims and methods the same as those of a Herodotus or a Thucydides? Should we think of him simply as "the Christian Josephus"? Mendels argues that Eusebius invented a new type of history writing, "media history", and that Eusebius viewed the rise and spread of Christianity itself as a media revolution. Eusebius worked much like modern journalists do in selecting, shaping, and presenting stories for popular consumption.Mendels examines Eusebius's presentation of martyrdom, heresy, missionary efforts, and other factors that contributed to Christianity's victory over its pagan competitors in the marketplace of ancient religion. As Mendels's striking study demonstrates, in the hands of Eusebius history writing itself became an important publicity tool in promoting the media revolution of early Christianity

HauptbeschreibungDie Zerstörung des Jerusalemer Tempels durch die Römer um 70 n. Chr. führte zur Spaltung der jüdischen Welt in ein östliches und westliches Judentum. Der Historiker Doron Mendels und der Rechtswissenschaftler Arye Edrei zeichnen anhand zahlreicher jüdischer wie nichtjüdischer Quellen akribisch nach, welche dramatischen Konsequenzen diese Teilung für das Judentum hatte. Mehr noch als durch die Sprachbarriere zerbrach die Einheit des Judentums durch die Ausprägung zweier disparater Lebens- und Wissenswelten: Im Osten entstand das rabbinische Judentum mit einem eigenen Schriftkano

Between Berlin and Jerusalem : Jewish problems - German problems( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"That Germany has a "past" ( the Holocaust) makes its attitudes toward Jews and Israel seen in a different light from the recent surge in antisemitism in Western Europe. This legacy has created a unique scenario of a unity between the Left and Right in Germany against Israel (the Jews), as well as a reworking of history to make Germans the victims of the Anglo-American bombings in World War II. This relativizing of suffering has struck a chord with many Germans. The taboos of antisemitism have been broken, along with a new renewed rising of German patriotism vis-a-vis World War II victories and heroes, and a call for closing the door on its Nazi past. According to David Witzhum, the European continent has begun a "historic process of saying goodbye to Israel. The Jews are inconvenient ghosts of the past" who interfere with European relations with Moslems. Professor Wistrich discusses the notoriety of self-hating Jews, especially Norman Finkelstein and Uri Avenery who are regarded as media stars in Germany. Professor Timm calls for a public discussion of this problem and a more balanced picture of Israel. Professor Mendels moderates the presentation and relates his experiences in Germany as a visiting professor at the University of Bonn"--Alden Films website
Zweierlei Diaspora( )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in German and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Historiker Doron Mendels und der Rechtswissenschaftler Arye Edrei zeichnen anhand zahlreicher jüdischer wie nichtjüdischer Quellen akribisch nach, welche dramatischen Konsequenzen diese Teilung für das Judentum hatte. Mehr noch als durch die Sprachbarriere zerbrach die Einheit des Judentums durch die Ausprägung zweier disparater Lebens- und Wissenswelten: Im Osten entstand das rabbinische Judentum mit einem eigenen Schriftkanon und der von ihm hervorgebrachten mündlichen Lehre, während das westliche Judentum biblisch verhaftet blieb. Abgeschnitten von den Entwicklungen im Osten, war Letzteres der christlichen Mission ausgeliefert
