Borders and Boundaries in and Around Dutch Jewish History

This study explores the shifting boundaries and identities of historic and contemporary Jewish communities. The contributors assert that, geographically speaking, Jewish people rarely lived in ghettos and have never been confined within the borders of one nation or country. Whereas their places of residence may have remained the same for centuries, the countries and regimes that ruled over them were rarely as constant, and power struggles often led to the creation of new and divisive national borders. Taking a postmodern historical approach, the contributors seek to reexamine Jewish history and Jewish studies through the lens of borders and boundaries.

Efter 451 (Chalcedon-synoden) kom syrisk-sprogede kirker til at reprAesentere det ikke-ortodokse. Forud gik 150 ar, hvor kirkesproget i Syrien nok primAert var grAesk, men hvor en sproglig, kulturel og kirkelig mangfoldighed, af og til spAendinger, gjorde sig gAeldende - ikke mindst nar de bibelske skrifter skulle oversAettes og fortolkes.

Not only the Jews but Dutch society at large was caught up in a cultural maelstrom between 1880 and 1940. In failing to form a separate pillar in a period when various population groups were doing just that, the Jews were certainly unlike contemporary Catholics or Protestants. In fact, the
