JUS 387 The History of Anti-Semitism


This course examines various definitions of anti-Semitism and traces the history of anti-Semitism (or “anti-Judaism”) from the earliest arguments between Christianizing Jews and "Judaizing" Christians to the birth of Islam, through the period of Muslim expansion and the Crusades, to the Middle Ages, the Enlightenment, and the Holocaust.  It looks at the differences among various types of Christian anti-Semitism, Muslim anti-Semitism, and Jewish anti-Semitism, and concludes with an attempt to look at contemporary forms of anti-Semitism and attempts to combat it.
