Item description for An Alternative Path to Modernity: The Sephardi Diaspora in Western Europe (Brill's Series in Jewish Studies) by Yosef Kaplan...

The essays in this volume deal with the social and intellectual history of the western Spanish and Portuguese Jews who established new communities in north western Europe during the 17th century. The founders of these communities were mainly former "Marranos", descendants of those Jews who had converted to Christianity in the closing years of the Middle Ages. After being separated from the Jewish world for many generations, they returned to Judaism and became an integral part of the Sephardi nation. Amsterdam became the metropolis of this new Jewish diaspora, which was charaterized by both ts involvement in colonial trade and its intellectual ferment. The reencounter of these Jews with Judaism was a complex affair, and for many of these former New Christians rabbinic Judaism aroused harsh criticism. In order to set the boundaries of their new identity, the leadership of the Sephardi communities of Amsterdam, Hamburg and London adopted a variety of strategies designed to rein in these wayward spirits. This process of socialisation into the Jewish world created a new type of Judaism, and those whose Jewish life was framed by this new amalgam can be considered the precursors of modernity in European Jewish society.
