He spent the academic year2016/17 at the Universitat Autnoma de Barcelona as a member of theERC project The Latin Talmud. The Christian discovery of theBabylonian Talmud is a significant landmark in the long and complexhistory of anti-Jewish polemic. While the Talmudic corpus developed in the same period as early Christianity, this post-biblical text waslargely unknown to the Christians. Full awareness of the Talmud amongChristian authors did not arise until the late 1230s, when the Jewishconvert Nicholas Donin presented a Latin translation of Talmudicfragments to Pope Gregory IX. Though the Talmud was subsequently puton trial (1240) and burnt (1241/2) in Paris, the controversysurrounding it continued over the following years, as Pope Innocent IV called for a revision of its condemnation. The textual basis for this revision is the Extractiones de Talmud, that is, a Latin translationof 1.922 Talmudic fragments. The articles in this volume shed newlight on this monumental translation and its historical context. Theyalso offer critical editions of related texts, such as DoninÕsanti-Talmudic polemic.
