Overview

This book deals with Sir Isaac Newton's Judaic studies and their impact on his theology. After examining what Jewish sources Newton read, the author explains how ideas Newton learned from Jewish history and literature found their way into his understanding of ancient religion, scriptural prophecy, the Temple of Jerusalem, the ancient church, and the corruption of Christianity. This investigation sheds new light on many aspects of newton's thought.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'It is a considerable achievement that at this relatively young age Goldish should be included among contemporary scholars whose work is reshaping the historical understanding of early modern history by emphasizing the decisive role that religion and theology played in the genesis of modern science. His book is important not only for historians of science but for anyone interested in early modern history and the ways in which the religious and scientific thought of the late 17th century contributed to the Enlightenment. The substantial appendices taken from Newton's theological manuscripts are an added feature of this excellent book.'
The Jewish Quarterly Review, XCI:3-4 (2001)
Booknews
Takes advantage of the recent flood of scholarship about Newton's non-scientific studies to delve more deeply into a specific area of his thought. Explores how he learned about the history and literature of the Jews, and how he integrated his findings into his unique historical theology. Finds that, though he probably never met a Jew, he invested heavily in Jewish studies, which left their mark on his investigations of early religion, scriptural prophecy, Trinitarianism, the early church, and the corruption of primitive Christianity. Also looks at his relationship with the Church of England, his understanding of biblical authority, and his Euhemerism. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
