Jewish-Christian Disputations in the Middle Ages
Hyam Maccoby with an introduction by Alan Dershowitz
During the Middle Ages, the Jewish religion was placed on trial by a series of notorious “disputations” or debates between champions of Christianity and Judaism. Only three of these disputations have detailed records which survived – Paris (1240), Barcelona (1263), and Tortosa (1413-14). This book provides an account from both Jewish and Christian sources of these events.
