Series Title: Studies in Jewish History and Culture
Description:

Chajim H. Steinthal (1823-1899) was one of the most important philosophical
linguists and teachers of the āScience of Judaismā. His multilayered and
diverse scholarly works sprang from the solid foundation of an
exceptionally broad and comprehensive education. Among other things,
together with Moritz Lazarus he founded the discipline of Völkerpsychologie
(psychology of nations). Steinthal taught mainly at the University of
Berlin and the Hochschule (later Lehranstalt) für die Wissenschaft des
Judentums.
The volume contains the results of an interdisciplinary conference
organized by the Leopold Zunz Centre for the Study of European Judaism
(LEUCOREA Foundation, Wittenberg), the Synagogue Museum Groebzig and the
Konrad Adenauer Foundation. It presents papers in the fields of
linguistics, philosophy, Jewish studies and history as well as an inventory
of Steinthal’s papers in Jerusalem. Contributions by: Dieter Adelmann,
Ingrid Belke, Craig Christy, Ivan Kalmar, Bogdan Kovtyk, Cornelie Kunze,
Joan Leopold, Hans-Ulrich Lessing, Marion Méndez, Manfred Ringmacher, Silke
Schaeper, Hartwig Wiedebach, Giuseppe Veltri.
