He demonstrates that Ashkenazic Jewish culture was profoundly
shaped and conditioned by life in an overwhelmingly Christian
society. Drawing on diverse Christian documents, he portrays
Christian beliefs about medieval Jews and Judaism with a degree of
detail seldom found in Jewish historics. Emphasizing social,
political, and economic history, but also duscussing religious
topics, Glick describes the evolution of a complex, inherently
unequal relationship. Because the Ashkenazic Jews of medieval
Europe were ancestral to almost the entire Jewish population of
eastern Europe, their historical experience played a major role in
the heritage of most Jewish Americans.
