France and the Holy Land by Daniel H. Weiss

Book Description

Few periods in history have captured the public imagination than the Crusades. The Crusaders cut a rakish, Romantic image, as chivalrous knights go off to liberate the Holy Land, to make the world a safer place for Christian pilgrims. But who, really, were the Crusaders? In this exciting, interdisciplinary volume, many aspects of Frankish Crusader culture are explored by some of the leading researchers. Here we examine the art, poetry, and architecture of Crusader Paris; look at the imprint the Frankish knights left on the Levant, and upon the city of Acre in particular. The manuscript also examines cultural exchange, not only with those from Byzantium, but also with Muslims. This book presents thoughtful, provocative essays from leading medievalists that will profoundly influence our understanding of the Crsuades and Crusader culture.

Paradox and the Prophets by Daniel H. Weiss Paradox and the Prophets, Hardback (June 2012)

Weiss examines the style and method of Hermann Cohen's magnum opus, Religion of Reason out of the Sources of Judaism. Through philosophical and scriptural analyses, Weiss argues for a new reading of this long-misunderstood book, demonstrating Cohen's continuing significance for Jewish thought and for philosophy of religion more broadly.
