Satanizing of the Jews; Origin and Development of Mystical Anti-Semitism

( 1 )

Overview

The literature about anti-Semitism is vast. However, much of what has been written about it takes the existence of this phenomenon for granted, giving us a history of anti-Semitism without explaining what it really is. Carmichael's treatise is different. It is not primarily a history of atrocities--it goes to the roots, thus clearing the confusion about the distinction between mystical anti-Semitism and other forms of racism.

Overview

The literature about anti-Semitism is vast. However, much of what has been written about it takes the existence of this phenomenon for granted, giving us a history of anti-Semitism without explaining what it really is. Carmichael's treatise is different. It is not primarily a history of atrocities--it goes to the roots, thus clearing the confusion about the distinction between mystical anti-Semitism and other forms of racism. Mystical anti-Semitism is a singular idea which culminated in the Holocaust and is still alive today. Carmichael contends that it has nothing to do with a personal hatred of the Jews. He argues that the view of anti-Semitism as being directed against real-life Jews has in fact helped objectify the irrational hatred that is at its core. Anti-Semitism received its mystical element when the Church Fathers transformed historical theory into theology. St. Paul believed in the imminence of the Kingdom of God which would be the end of history and reverse the injustice done to the Jews. To him, God's reentering history was delayed only until the God-forces in this world had finally defeated the Devil-forces. Yet the world did not end, and in the wake of Rome's crushing victory over Judea in the Roman-Jewish War, the idea of the Kingdom of God was postponed indefinitely. Instead, the Universal Church took over God's place in the world, and the Devil's role was assigned to those who rejected Jesus and have since been blamed for his death: the Jews. The rise of Christianity established anti-Semitism politically; it finally gained a broad, popular basis during the Crusades, eventually leading to international prosecutions. Ghettoes were established as a consequence of the Reformation. Carmichael describes the waning of theology's influence during the 18th century, which only caused the concepts of "Jew" and "Jewish" to become abstract and ultimately being equated with Pure Evil; the development of the concept of race in the 19th century, which turned

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Unlike other forms of prejudice, anti-Semitism took on a mystical character with the advent of Christianity, asserts Carmichael. Images of Jews as inhumanly evil and satanically powerful were promulgated by the early Church Fathers. The Crusaders exploited the ancient theme of Jews as demonic murderers of God, and after Luther's campaign of violent anti-Semitism, the stereotype of Jew as primordial sinner became central to the catechism taught to children. Carmichael, a specialist in Christianity ( The Death of Jesus ) and Russian history, follows the lineage of ``mystical anti-Semitism'' from Christian medieval theology through secularized modern Christendom to its ultimate, demented manifestation notion of Holocaust as a `flowering' of anything seems offensive in Hitler and the Holocaust. He views Arab hostility to Israel as a collective enmity distinct from the mystical variety of Jew-hatred and rooted in the conviction that Jews should be subjugated to Islam. This important, lucid critique offers a provocative perspective on centuries of bigotry. (May)

    Beyond the ordinary standards

    Unlike the myriad of books relating to anti-semitism or jew hatred. This book reaches far back into pre-christian history to establish a sound bases for the development of this unique predjudice. Carmichael develops the fermentation of a mystical, theological concept that equates The Jewish People with 'satan', the Anti-Christ, Witchcraft and Demonology. The book is well organized although a bit reliant on 'twenty five dollar words'. Carmichael makes his point and the reader should come away with a much deeper understanding of Mystical Anti-Semitism.
