Ferdie Fluitsma merkte dat het volgende boek nog niet op dit
weblog gesignaleerd was en tipte mij dat ook Spinoza erin voorkwam. En hoewel
books.google laat zien dat dat tamelijk marginaal blijft, neem ik hier toch
graag over de tip dat verscheen:

Menasseh ben Israel (1604-1657)
was one of the most important Rabbis of the Early ModernAge in Europe. He
became known primarily through his leading role in negotiating the readmission
of the Jews to England. The England negotiations, however, were only the final
chapter of a life-long program, which is fully examined in detail for the first
time in this work. Menasseh is introduced as a Jewish scholar, who – despite
all the success he achieved in the Christian world – also failed because his
path between mediation and self-realization was understood only by a very few.
