Monsters & Madonnas: The Roots of Christian Anti-Semitism

by

Monsters & Madonnas: The Roots of Christian Anti-Semitism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Monsters and Madonnas, Judith Taylor Gold challenges traditional views that trace the source of Christian anti-Semitism to the presentation of Jews in the first four books of the New Testament. She contends that the unflattering depiction of Jews in the gospels and other Christian writings is the result — not the cause — of Christian anti-Semitism.<P>Traversing widely ranging subjects such as pre-Christian religion, New and Old Testament scripture, horror literature, incest and pornography, she invokes an imperative "exchange of dialects" between the unconscious mind and the hidden content of the Christ story as the birthplace of Christian anti-Semitism.

Book News Annotation:

A biblical scholar challenges the view that attributes the source of Christian anti-Semitism to the portrayal of Jews in the New Testament, by comparing archetypal elements of the Christ story with pre-gospel religion and classic horror literature. Revises the 1988 edition (New Amsterdam Books).
