The Faith of Fallen Jews: Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi and the Writing of Jewish History

This volume charts Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi's intellectual trajectory by bringing together a mix of classic and lesser-known essays from the whole of his career. The essays in this collection, representative of the range of his writing, acquaint the reader with his research on early modern Spanish Jewry and the experience of crypto-Jews, varied reflections on Jewish history and memory, and Yerushalmi’s enduring interest in the political history of the Jews.
