about this item

Long interested in the issues of Jewish-Christian relations as a Catholic, Passet examined neglected theologians of the Renaissance and realized what a great Hebrew scholar Johann Reuchlin was, the significance his work had for the development of Renaissance humanism and the Reformation, and how misinformed students and scholars were, and still are, about him. Concentrating his investigation not only on Reuchlin’s Greek and Hebrew studies, but also on his philosophy and theology, he presents a theological profile of Reuchlin while simultaneously underexposing Reuchlin the lawyer. Drawing on the critical edition of the four volumes of Reuchlin’s correspondence and the new volumes of his complete works, Passet cites his perspective as one who sympathizes with the changes brought about in the Church by the Second Vatican Council.
