The collection lays particular emphasis on the dynamics of continuity and change in Jewish society, culture, and religion in the ancient Mediterranean world, while also tracing how in the course of the medieval and early modern periods Jews, Christians, and Muslims came to participate in-and contest-shared literary, intellectual, and religious traditions. Taken together, this collection reflects the startling breadth of Schafers own research interests as well as the lasting impact of his contributions to the academic study of Jewish literature and history, which have made visible the inner diversity of Judaism and stressed the essential place of Jewish studies within the humanities.
