Hungarian Jewish scholarship had a lasting impact on the Wissenschaft des Judentums ("Science of Judaism"). Its unique profile was shaped by Ashkenazi Yeshiva traditions, Jewish modernization movements, and Magyar politics that boosted academic Orientalism in the context of patriotic historiography. This volume presents an overview of a century of Hungarian Jewish scholarly achievements, examining their historical context and assessing their ongoing relevance.
