Inhalt In this workshop, we will examine how and why Christians were propelled to study Hebrew in early modern Europe. Though understandable that Christians wishing to follow the invocation “ad fontes” undertook the task of engaging with the Old Testament in its original language, it is not self-evident why they also would study rabbinic texts and medieval and post-medieval Jewish literature. We will study this phenomenon through the works of one of the first English “professors of Hebrew” Robert Wakefield, and those of, arguably, the most distinguished Hebraist of the early modern period, Johann Buxtorf of Basel. In the course of our scrutiny of their works we will necessarily have to consider how their study of Hebrew affected or was affected by their notion of Jews and Judaism. I will provide specimen texts in Latin, German and English translation on which to base our discussions.
Bemerkungen Joanna Weinberg is a professor emerita in early modern Jewish history and Rabbinics at the University of Oxford. Her extensive research and work are devoted to the study of the intellectual life of Christian and Jewish scholars during the Renaissance period. Together with Anthony Grafton (Princeton University) she is currently working on a book on Basel’s foremost early modern Hebraist Johannes Buxtorf the elder. Also in collaboration with Grafton, she has already published a detailed analysis of Buxtorf’s reading practices (2016) as well as an elaborate study of Isaac Causabon (2011). Further published works include numerous books and articles on various aspects of scholarly life and practices and an annotated translation of Azariah dei Rossi’s pioneering work The Light of the Eyes (1574f.; 2001). Joanna Weinberg will spend two weeks in Basel as a visiting fellow of the BGSH in April 2021.
