Rich with the insights of prominent Catholic and Jewish commentators and religious leaders,Catholics and Jews in Twentieth-Century Americarecounts the amazing transformation of a relationship of irreconcilable enmity to one of respectful coexistence and constructive dialogue. Focusing primarily on the Catholic doctrinal view of the Jews and its ramifications, Egal Feldman traces the historical roots of anti-semitism, examining tenacious Catholic beliefs including the idea that the Jews lost their place as the chosen people with the coming of Christianity, deicide, and the conviction that their purported responsibility for the Crucifixion justified subsequent Jewish misery. A new era of Catholic-Jewish relations opened in 1962 with Vatican II's Declaration on the Jews, reversing the theology of contempt. Feldman explores the strides made in improving relations, such as the Vatican's diplomatic recognition of the Jewish state, as well as a number of recent issues.
