What was the role of the Jews in the shaping of the Reformation – a huge turning point in Europe’s history? This event marks the publication of Kenneth Austin’s path-breaking study, The Jews and the Reformation (Yale University Press, 2020). Extraordinarily, this is the first full-length study of the effect of the Reformation on the Jews of Europe, and comes at a time when scholars are bringing fresh approaches to the place and significance of the Jews in Renaissance and Reformation Europe – and taking together Jewish and Christian perspectives. Where we might think only of Martin Luther Austin shows us the effects of changes in thought and action in a large range of contexts.

The author joins Professor Helen Parish (Reading) and Professor Anthony Bale (Birkbeck) to consider the book’s significance for the history of relations between Christians and Jews as well as for Reformation Studies and European History – and to tease out some connections between past and present. We will hear from the three speakers and then use questions from the chat to start our Q&A and discussion.
