Johann Andreas Eisenmenger - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A facsimile reprint of the long out-of-print 1748 classic (printed in old-fashioned type script), with a lengthy new introductory essay, Eisenmenger: Father of the European Enlightenment, by Michael A. Hoffman II. Also includes a comprehensive, annotated bibliography. In 1700, after nineteen years of study and research including with leading rabbis in Frankfurt and Amsterdam, Johann Andreas Eisenmenger, Professor of Hebrew and Aramaic at the University of Heidelberg, publishedEntdecktes Judenthum(Judaism Revealed). The entire stock of the book was almost immediately seized by order of the Holy Roman Emperor. Beginning in 1732, portions of this banned book were translated into English and published in London as The Traditions of the Jews. For the first time in more than 250 years, Independent History and Research has brought the English version of Eisenmenger's suppressed masterwork, one of the rarest books in the world, back into print, in a limited edition of 2,000 copies, in a high-quality, durable paperback.
