Summary expansion
Drawing on many commentaries that exist only in manuscript, and that have not previously been known or studied, explores the role of the Book of Esther in the intellectual and cultural life of Jews during the Middle Ages. Walfish (Jewish studies, U. of Toronto) surveys the Jewish and non-Jewish sources for exegesis and explains literary and theological issues, then shows how the story appeared in such contexts as the European perceptions of Persia, Jewish-Gentile relations, antisemitism, and the royal court. The apparatus includes bio-bibliographies of the exegetes, bibliographies of printed and manuscript medieval commentaries, and, among the indexes, those of scriptural citations and of manuscripts by depository libraries. Paper edition (unseen), $23.95. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
