Description

By Jacob Katz

Tradition and Crisis traces the roots of modernity to internal developments within the communities themselves. Katz traces the modern movements of the Haskalah (Enlightenment) in the West and Hasidism in the East, to an internal breakdown in the structure of these communities and the emergence of an alternative leadership in the wake of the Sabbatian challenge.

A dynamic work that has radically changed our view of this history, Tradition and Crisis remains the pivotal text for understanding the revolution in the entire conception of Jewish identity in the modern era.

Эта книга написана крупнейшим еврейским историком XX века и посвящена периоду перехода от Средневековья к Новому времени, когда привычный жизненный уклад и традиционная система ценностей европейских евреев претерпели коренные изменения. Исследование Яакова Каца является историческим по своей теме и социологическим по концепции и методике.
