Pressestimmen'"This volume adds invaluably to our historical knowledge of the much forgotten but highly significant influence of H. Steinthal in developing the study of modern linguistics and in creating modern Jewish studies. In so doing, this collection of essays raises anew many urgent philosophical questions about the interconnections between language, theology, and politics. Individually the essays are excellent and as a whole the volume is a major contribution to our understanding of European Judaism.'
