Ebrei e cattolici : le colpe by Riccardo Calimani( Book )

4 editions published in 1988 in Italian and French and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historian R. Calimani traces Jewish-Christian relations from the destruction of the Second Temple (70 CE), perceived by Christians as divine punishment for the Jews' refusal to recognize Jesus as the Messiah. The incipient Church endorsed the Roman triumph in order to complete Christianity's historical usurpation of Judaism. Paul's polemic with Judeo-Christians led to intolerance toward Jews, and Peter coined the accusation of deicide. Recounts prohibitions, expulsions, and persecutions throughout the centuries. States that recent surveys among Catholics reveal ignorance of all things Jewish and even of the "Nostra Aetate" declaration, while non-recognition of Israel is due to theological embarrassment. Italy's Chief Rabbi E. Toaff warns against recent expressions of antisemitism, and racial outbursts by Italian teenagers influenced by Le Pen's xenophobic ideology. Calls for reconsideration of the significance of the 1938 racial laws in Italy, and an attack against "normalization" and banalization of the Holocaust by revisionists
Die vielen Gesichter des einen Gottes : Christen und Juden im Gespräch by Reinhard Neudecker( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in Italian and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the "Nostra aetate" declaration of Vatican Council II, and later church documents which detail its application in preaching and education. Expresses disappointment that the 1985 guidelines do not deal adequately with the history of the Church's persecution of Jews and with the Holocaust, noting that the Nazis drew on traditional Christian anti-Judaism. Also discusses the implications of the Pope's visit to the Rome synagogue in April 1986. Concludes that the Church now has a much more differentiated and constructive understanding of Judaism
