Tragedy And Transcendence: The Meaning Of 1492 For Jewish History, David B. Ruderman Jan 1992

Tragedy And Transcendence: The Meaning Of 1492 For Jewish History, David B. Ruderman

Departmental Papers (History)

This year we commemorate the five hundredth anniversary of a tragic expulsion. Our history is replete with tragic moments, but this moment is of enormous significance for Jewish as well as for Christian and Moslem history. For Jews, 1492 constituted the abrupt end of an extraordinary cultural experience, a formative and repercussive period in the life of our people affecting every area of its civilization: Halakha, philosophy, kabbalah, poetry, ethical literature, messianism, political thought, and more.2 A world of enormous vitality and effervescence, a world, both in its high and low points, that can teach us a great deal ...


Jewish Preaching And The Language Of Science: The Sermons Of Azariah Figo, David B. Ruderman Jan 1992

Jewish Preaching And The Language Of Science: The Sermons Of Azariah Figo, David B. Ruderman

Departmental Papers (History)

The age in which the preachers of the Italian ghettos delivered their sermons was also the great age of scientific discovery in Europe. Far removed both geographically and culturally from the cramped but ornate synagogues of Venice, Ferrara, or Mantua, Galileo peered through his famous telescope, Vesalius performed his revolutionary anatomical experiments, and Bacon and Descartes reflected deeply on the new methods of fathoming the natural world from their own distinctive perspectives. Beyond the walls ostensibly separating Jews from the social and cultural life of their Christian contemporaries, a revolution was taking place in astronomy, in physics, and in the ...


Jewish Thought In Newtonian England: The Career And Writings Of David Nieto (In Memory Of Jacob J. Petuchowski), David B. Ruderman Jan 1992

Jewish Thought In Newtonian England: The Career And Writings Of David Nieto (In Memory Of Jacob J. Petuchowski), David B. Ruderman

Departmental Papers (History)

David Nieto (1654-1728), the first rabbi of the new Bevis Marks Synagogue and the hakham of the Spanish and Portuguese congregation of London at the beginning of the eighteenth century, is not an unstudied figure in recent Jewish historiography. From the early portrait of Moses Gaster to the later elaborations of Cecil Roth and Moses Hyamson, and from the exhaustive bibliographical study of Israel Solomons to the pioneering study of Nieto's thought by Jacob Petuchowski, Nieto's public career and theological writings have been examined as well as any other Jewish intellectual figure of early modern Europe.1 Yet ...


Gentlemen And Scholars : College And Community In The "Age Of The University," 1865-1917, William Bruce Leslie Jan 1992

Gentlemen And Scholars : College And Community In The "Age Of The University," 1865-1917, William Bruce Leslie

Brockport Bookshelf

By W. Bruce Leslie, College at Brockport faculty member.

A new look at the social and cultural roles of the American college after the Civil War. Historians have dubbed the period from the Civil War to World War I 'the age of the university,' suggesting that colleges were becoming out of touch with American society. Bruce Leslie however challenges this view through case studies of four representative colleges from the Middle Atlantic region-Bucknell, Franklin and Marshall, Princeton, and Swarthmore. Nineteenth-century colleges generally were founded to serve ethnic, denominational, and local interests. After mid-century, however, many were forced to seek financial ...

Generational Theory And Collective Autobiography, John D. Hazlett Dec 1991

Generational Theory And Collective Autobiography, John D. Hazlett

John D Hazlett

Hazlett's essay examines the emergence of generational theory at the beginning of the 20th Century, considers some of the reasons for its popularity, and then shows how generationalism influenced the autobiographical writing of two self-proclaimed generational groups: the writers who came of age in the 1920s, and the group of activists and writers who came of age in the 1960s.
