not yet rated|write a review
Oliver Cromwell's readmission of the Jews to England in 1656 has traditionally been regarded as a watershed in the history of the Jews in England; the culmination of a Christian enthusiasm for Jewish ideas which had been gathering strength since the Reformation. As well as providing a critical account of the historiography of readmission as a definitive act of toleration, this book reinterprets Christian philosemitism of the early modern period in the context of historically specific religious and political debates.
