Near Fine in Fine jacket. The two volumes of "The Church and the Jews in the XIII Century" provide a presentation of scores of papal documents together with translations, notes, and a thorough introduction. This text of the first volume has served historians of the popes and the Jews for nearly fifty years as one repository of source materials for the important period 1198-1254. Solomon Grayzel concluded that until the nuances of papal teachings were understood through the insights gained from a continued revelation of new texts, the perception of papal policies toward the Jews would remain incomplete, and inaccurate. Thus he spent years collecting additional material. The format of the second volume (1254-1314) varies somewhat from that of the first volume; detailed summaries of the Latin texts are given rather than translations. About the Author A teacher and a scholar, Rabbi Solomon Grayzel focused much of his research on papal-Jewish relations. Awarded a Ph.D. from Dropsie College, he taught at Gratz College and Dropsie University and was long associated with the Jewish Publication Society. The Church and the Jews in the X/IIth Century was originally published in 1933 and reissued in 1966. His History of the Jews first appeared in 1947 with a revision in 1968. Kenneth R. Stow is currently a professor of Jewish history at Haifa University. Among his published works are Catholic Thought and Papal Jewry Policy, 1555-1593 and Taxation, Community, and State: The Jews and the Fiscal Foundations of the Early Modern Papal State.
