The course aims to deepen the student's understanding of the road to the Shoah through a reflection upon the multiple aspects developed historically by Chritian hatred of Jews (anti-Judaism, anti-Judaism, anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism). Attending students will be asked to hone their skills in reading specialist texts and producing short written papers.
Anti-Judaism and Western Christian Culture:
the legacy of the Church Fathers in the theologies of the Nineteenth to Twentieth centuries. From the myth of the Jewish usurer to the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion": the origins and rooting of anti-Judaic stereotypes. From libertine polygenism to modern race theories: the (pseudo)scientific cultures of anti-Semitism. Anti-Zionism and world politics: the issue of the state of Israel.
Course notes and readings will be provided time to time for attending students. Non-attending students must study AA.VV., "Capire gli stermini. Per una didattica della Shoah", Centro Stampa Giunta Regione Toscana, Firenze 2010, pp. 1-200, which is available for free at the following link https://www.regione.toscana.it/documents/10180/23918/Capire+gli+stermini...). Additionally, non-attending students are required to read H. ARENDT, Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil (any edition in any language).
