We’ll be back to blogging as usual, although the discussion of Demonic Desires will continue. Stay tuned for Ishay’s response and for announcements regarding the next Book Club.
A group of mainly British scholars have started to put together an online resource for the teaching and study of Jewish/Non-Jewish Relations. From the announcement:
The complex relationship between Jews and non-Jews lies at the heart of teaching Jewish Studies at university level. A new online teaching resource provides access to a broad range of primary sources and high-quality commentaries by experts in the field, addressing the perceived lack of an easily accessible body of sources, which specifically deal with relations between Jews and non-Jews from a historical and contemporary perspective.
Brouria Bitton-Ashkelony of Hebrew University’s department of Comparative Religion and its Center for the Study of Christianity has officially announced the release of two online bibliographies available on the Center’s website: one on Christianity in Palestine/Eretz-Israel and the other on Syriac Christianity. The four separate browse options (author, year, keyword and era) and the search option mean that the bibliographies are quite easy to navigate.
