This book focuses on the dynamic and variegated culture of Jews living in Germany during the Middle Ages. The esoterics, mystics and priests who produced the works examined here derived their inspiration from the traditional Jewish texts, but were also influenced by the world around them despite the seclusion enforced by the religious prejudices of the time.
