Cloth, 8vo, 500+ pages each volume. Founded by Zacharias Frankel in 1851, The Monatschrift over the years was headed by editors which included Heinrich Graetz, Pinkus Frankl, Markus Brann, David Kaufmann, Isaak Heinemann, & Leo Baeck. Though founded by Frankel as a "Periodical for the religious interest of Judaism, " it soon became the most important forum for the history and science of Judaism. Probably because of its strictly scientific appraoch it was able to survive in the Nazi period until the end of 1939. The final monumental volume, edited by Baeck in cooperation with Jewish scholars in Germany and abroad, appeared as a complete volume in October of 1939 and reached only a few subscribers (Burgers, n. D. ). Complete sets are difficult to find, this set especially so with all original editions (none in reprint), including the exceedingly rare final volume from 1939.

13. • Lessing, Gotthold Ephraim; Kay Nebel. G.E. LESSINGS FABELN: DREY BÜCHER, 1759-1777, UND ANHANG. Frankfurt am Main: Kleukens-Presse, 1920. Cloth. 8vo. 71pages. Hand-colored illustrations throughout. Woodcuts by Kay Nebel. Printed on double leaves. Limited edition of 250 numbered copies; this particular volume is number 28. In German. "Lessing was a German dramatist, philosopher, and critic. One of the outstanding representatives of the Enlightenment in Germany, Lessing was devoted to the principle of toleration. One of Lessing's earliest literary ventures was Die Juden (1749), a one-act comedy in which for the first time a Jew was presented on the German stage in a reasonably objective manner. Lessing later upheld the play's defense of toleration against the criticism of J. D. Michaelis. Through a physician, Aaron Solomon Gumpertz, he became a friend and admirer of Moses Mendelssohn, whom he encouraged to publish his first philosophical work. The outcome of their common interest in aesthetics was Pope ein Metaphysiker (1755) and a critical journal, Briefe, die neueste Literatur betreffend (1759-60). Their correspondence, mainly on philosophical themes, continued until Lessing's death. Mendelssohn was the inspiration for Lessing's Nathan der Weise (1779), his last play, and once more a plea for toleration. Based on the parable of the three rings, adapted from Boccaccio's Decameron, the play presents Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as three sons of a benevolent father who has given each an identical ring, although each one claims that his ring alone is authentic. Nathan is made the spokesman for the aspirations of the Enlightenment: tolerance, brotherhood, and love of humanity. Lessing's vision of Jewish-Christian amity was ridiculed by Julius von Voss in Der travestierte Nathan der Weise (1804), and attacked by the anti-Semites Wilhelm Marr, Karl Eugen Duehring, Sebastian Brunner, and Adolf Bartels. On the other hand Lessing's personal example and ideals were vigorously upheld and emphasized by German Jews such as Gabriel Riesser, I. H. Ritter, Berthold Auerbach, Emil Lehmann, and Johann Jacoby. Nathan der Weise was translated into Hebrew, notably by Simon Bacher and A. B. Gottlober and many of Lessing's other plays were also translated. His ideological and stylistic influence on the Haskalah was as decisive as that of Friedrich Schiller. However, Lessing's attitude toward Judaism was ambivalent. While never forsaking the principle of tolerance, he came to depreciate Judaism in relation to Christianity with his publication of Fragmente eines Ungenannten (1774-78), the posthumous writings of the ultra-rationalist theologian H. M. Reimarus. He reached a further stage in his epoch-making Erziehung des Menschengeschlechts ("Education of Humanity"), which was published anonymously. In it the Old Testament is described as morally and aesthetically inferior to the New Testament, which itself is on the verge of being superseded by rational enlightenment. The monotheistic and universalistic mission of Judaism as the forerunner of Christianity had been completed. This attitude also appeared in Nathan der Weise, in which the brother representing Christianity accuses the Jewish religion of having given birth to intolerance through the concept of a chosen people" (Graetz, EJ).

Translated from the German, with notes. Delitzsch was a German Protestant theologian, Bible and Judaica scholar. "He maintained a genuine understanding of, and affection for, Judaism. Well versed in Hebrew and in Semitic languages, as well as in the Talmud and in medieval Jewish literature, Delitzsch was in close touch with the leading Jewish scholars of his time...[he authored the] first comprehensive study of the history of Hebrew poetry and a serious attempt to deal with this subject with the accepted tools of literary criticism. In his Bible commentaries, the most important of which are those on Psalms (1859, 18945), on Isaiah (1866-18894), and on Ecclesiastes (1875), his approach was based upon philological analysis. He meticulously adhered to the masoretic text, and, on principle, avoided critical emendations. He mitigated his traditional attitude only in his later writings, in which he accepted some of the tenets of the "source theory" of modern Bible criticism. (Mordechai Breuer, EJ) SUBJECT(S): Bible.

Steinthal polemicized against Bruno Bauer and others who showed Christian prejudice in their treatment of Judaism and he defended both Jews and Judaism against anti-Semitic attacks.

English Unitarian theologian who devoted his life to research into the Judaism of the Second Temple and the Talmud, particularly the Pharisees. Herford rejected the notion that the halakhic sages placed the ceremonial act in the center of the Jewish religion: he demonstrates that in talmudic Judaism the intention is primary, but that in the view of the halakhic sages its moral content must be manifested primarily in deeds. The difference between Judaism and Christianity was seen by Herford to rest on the difference between faith in a divinely revealed law, and faith in a supernatural personality capable of legislating laws which are "outside the authority of the Torah. " Judaism is an independent entity and has no need of Christianity, while Christianity, according to Herford, needs Judaism's pure faith, which rejects any compromise with paganism. [Israel M.

She was a vigorous opponent of Zionism and of emigration from Germany, due to its disruptive effect on family life. She died soon after she was interrogated by the Gestapo. (EJ) Good condition.

RELIGIONSGESELLSCHAFT, FRANKFURT AM MAIN. Frankfurt am Main: Hermon, 1928. Hardcover. Large 8vo. 175; 60 pages. In German and Hebrew. Includes M. Lange's edition of Meiri's commentary on the tractate Hagigah. Fold-out letter between two sections. "Meiri (1249-1316), a Provencal scholar and commentator of the Talmud, was born in Perpignan where he spent his whole life. His family, regarded as one of the most distinguished in Provence, originated from Carcassonne and Narbonne. Meiri's principal teacher was Reuben b. Hayyim. Among the contemporary scholars with whom he maintained close ties was Solomon b. Abraham Adret; they exchanged many responsa and Adret's teachings assisted him in the writing of his monumental work. Meiri was one of the participants in Adret's polemic against Maimonides which ended in Adret's excommunicating any person who read philosophical works in his youth. In a letter to Abba Mari b. Moses Joseph, who handled the entire affair and collected the relevant correspondence, Meiri disassociated himself from the attitude of Adret and his colleagues, upholding freedom of thought for the scholars of each country, and freedom from intervention by outside scholars. Meiri occupies a central position in the sphere of the talmudic creativity of Provence, not only due to his extraordinary literary fecundity and the comprehensive scope of his works, but also because he summarizes the teachings of his predecessors during the previous three centuries. In effect he puts the seal upon the literary efforts in this area of Jewish culture. His literary activity covered halakhic rulings, talmudic exposition, biblical exegesis, customs, ethics, and philosophy. The vast majority of Meiri's works remained in manuscript until very recently, probably on account of their exceptional length, which made it practically impossible to copy them in full. A small number of his books were published in the second half of the 18th century and the majority of them-from the beginning of the 20th century up to the present day. A great contribution to this project was by A. Sofer (Schreiber). An exception is his commentary to the Book of Proverbs which was first published in Portugal in 1492, and then included in the Kehillot Moshe edition of Mikra'ot Gedolot (Amsterdam, 1724). Meiri's chief work is the gigantic Beit ha-Behirah on the Talmud, in which he was engaged from 1287 to 1300. In it he summarizes the subject matter of the Talmud, giving both the meaning and the halakhah derived from it. It follows the order of the Mishnah. Of particular interest is the introduction to his commentary on Avot, in which he gives the chain of tradition of Torah study from its outset to his own time. Meiri wrote several other important works. His first, written in his youth, was Hibbur ha-Teshuvah devoted entirely to ethics and repentance. It clearly reveals the influence of the Malmad ha-Talmidim of Jacob Anatoli, the first ProvenLal scholar to stimulate interest in the meaning of the precepts as distinct from their observance. It may be assumed that toward the end of his life Meiri revised the work, which in its present form, bears the character of a well constructed sermon book. Extracts from it were published in various places; it was published in its entirety for the first time in 1950.Meiri's commentary to Proverbs, and even more, his commentary to Psalms (1936), reveal all his exegetical and stylistic characteristics as well as his love for explicitness" (Ta-Shma, EJ).
