Overview

This collection of seven essays draws on work done in 2010. The author takes up several topics in the systemic analysis of Judaisms and deals with comparisons of Judaisms. The papers include two commentaries on the current state of the academic study of Judaism.

This re-presentation serves a readership to whom the initial presentation in lectures or specialized journals or short-run monographs is inaccessible. Some of the essays furthermore provide a précis, for colleagues in kindred fields, of fully worked out monographs.
