This book examines the Jewish–Christian relations in Strasbourg, a city in early modern France that expelled its Jewish population in 1390 and readmitted them only in 1791—a period of 400 years. It chronicles how Jews entered and exited the city as it underwent reform, and looks at the gradual transformation from Catholicism to orthodox Lutheranism. The book considers the direct impact of the Protestant Reformation on the Jewish community of the Empire, and explores how Jewish life gradually shifted to the countryside after the medieval urban Jewish communities disappeared through expulsions. Moreover, it shows that Jews and Christians interacted not only in the economic sphere, but also developed social relationships with one another. This book offers an analysis of how Jewish–Christian relations evolved during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in the face of changes in residential patterns, shifts in theology and religious identification, and ensuing conflicts over faith.

Keywords:   Jews, Christians, Strasbourg, expulsions, Catholicism, Lutheranism, Protestant Reformation, countryside, social relationships, theology
