Sample text

Recent research by Yosef Kaplan and Matt Goldish have found cases of people belonging to both Jewish and Christian communities and keeping up the practices of both. It would be interesting to find out the prior history of such people, whether they began as Jews or as Christians, or possibly both. The interface between Judaism and Christianity in the mid-seventeenth century produced a wide and dynamic group of religious views and practices. Most of the study has been on Jews becoming Christians and Marranos returning to Judaism.

The work on this went on in the rabbi’s house. Boreel moved into the rabbi’s house and learned Portuguese, so he and the rabbi could work together easily. 8 They got some Dutch Millenarians to finance the publication of it and approached Menasseh ben Israel to do the actual printing. At this point, troubles developed. Menasseh was happy to be the printer, but pointed out that no Jew would use the document if Boreel’s name was on it and they would only trust the text if it was attributed to a Jewish editor.

He was especially involved with Menasseh and Boreel. Rittangel is a curious character who proved too difficult to manage for the project. 5 See Pierre Bayle’s article, “Rittangel,” in his Dictionnaire historique et critique. Written over fifty years after the college plan, in which he still wonders whether Rittangel was a Jew who became a Christian or a Christian who became a Jew or went through a series of conversions in different directions.
