Langmuir, Gavin I.  
History, Religion, and Antisemitism.

Publisher: Los Angeles, Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies / Calif. UP [1990].
ix, 380 p., index. “Gavin I. Langmuir's work on the formation and nature of antisemitism has earned him an international reputation. In History, Religion, and Antisemitism he bravely confronts the problems that arise when historians have to describe and explain religious phenomena, as any historian of antisemitism must. What, exactly, does the historian mean by 'religion' or 'religious'? How, and to what extent, can the historian be objective? Is it possible to discuss Christian attitudes toward Jews, for example, without adopting the language, and with it the historical explanations, of those whose attitudes one is discussing? Langmuir's original and stimulating responses to these questions reflect his inquiry into the approaches of other disciplines. …After a critical examination of the major approaches of anthropology, sociology, and psychology, Langmuir turns to recent research on the functioning of the mind and the nature of thought, and applies his findings to the study of religion. …' Dj; fine.
