Two New Online Resources (Around the Web-January 11, 2012)

We’ll be back to blogging as usual, although the discussion of Demonic Desires will continue.  Stay tuned for Ishay’s response and for announcements regarding the next Book Club.

A group of mainly British scholars have started to put together an online resource for the teaching and study of Jewish/Non-Jewish Relations.  From the announcement:

The complex relationship between Jews and non-Jews lies at the heart of teaching Jewish Studies at university level.  A new online teaching resource provides access to a broad range of primary sources and high-quality commentaries by experts in the field, addressing the perceived lack of an easily accessible body of sources, which specifically deal with relations between Jews and non-Jews from a historical and contemporary perspective.

Brouria Bitton-Ashkelony of Hebrew University’s department of Comparative Religion and its Center for the Study of Christianity has officially announced the release of two online bibliographies available on the Center’s website: one on Christianity in Palestine/Eretz-Israel and the other on Syriac Christianity.  The four separate browse options (author, year, keyword and era) and the search option mean that the bibliographies are quite easy to navigate.
