Summary
"Robert E. Lerner uncovers a strain of medieval millennial thought that conceived of a peaceful place for Jews at the end of time. Its proponents maintained that "the candelabra of the Church would return to the Synagogue" and that the millennial Church would celebrate the feasts of "Saint Abraham" and "Saint David." Rejecting the common assumption that all millenarians were of necessity anti-Jewish, Lerner reveals a Christian prophetic tradition that foresaw a world in which Jews and Gentiles would come together to mutual benefit." "Drawing heavily on new evidence, much of which remains in manuscript, Lerner offers an unexpected angle on the study of Western European intolerance and the complicated relationships between Christians and Jews."--Jacket
