This book is the first complete and thoroughly commented English translation of Johannes Reuchlin's Augenspiegel (1511). The translation sheds light on the author's motive in appealing to the authorities for the preservation of Jewish books at a stage of great cultural change in Early Modern Europe. It also addresses the question of how the church and state dealt intellectually with Judaism at a time when it was considered a threat to the existence of Christianity. The translation of one of the most politically controversial sixteenth century pamphlets provides a view of the treatment of a minority's culture with perhaps lessons for today's world.
