Alienated Minority by Kenneth R. Stow
Book DescriptionThis narrative history surveying one thousand years of Jewish life integrates the Jewish experience into the context of the overall culture and society of medieval Europe. It presents a picture of the interaction between Christians and Jews in this tumultuous era. "Alienated Minority" shows us what it meant to be a Jew in Europe in the Middle Ages. The story begins in the 5th century, when autonomous Jewish rule in Palestine came to a close and when the papacy, led by Gregory the Great, established enduring principles regarding Christian policy toward Jews. Kenneth Stow examines the structures of self-government in the European Jewish community and the centrality of emerging concepts of representation. He studies economic enterprise, especially banking, constructs a clear image of the medieval Jewish family, and portrays in detail Jewish intellectual life.
