Judaism, the oldest of the Abrahamitic religions, is one of the pillars of modern civilization. A collective of internationally renowned experts cooperated in a singular academic enterprise to portrait Judaism from its transformation as a Temple cult to its broad contemporary varieties. In three volumes the long-running book series "Die Religionen der Menschheit" (Religions of Mankind) presents for the first time a complete and compelling view on Jewish life now and then - a fascinating portrait of the Jewish people with its ability to adapt itself to most different cultural settings, always maintaining its strong and unique identity.
Volume III completes this ambitious project with profound chapters on Halakhah (Jewish Law), Modern Jewish Culture, Jewish Languages, Modern Jewish Literature and on Judaism and inter-faith relations since World War II.
