This booklet explores the original phenomenon of Christian engagement with Yiddish language and literature from the start of the 16th century to the overdue eighteenth century. by means of exploring the motivations for Christian curiosity in Yiddish, and the differing ways that Yiddish was once mentioned and taken care of in Christian texts, A Goy Who Speaks Yiddish addresses a wide range of concerns, so much significantly Christian Hebraism, Protestant theology, early sleek Yiddish tradition, and the social and cultural background of language in early glossy Europe.
Elyada's research of quite a lot of philological and theological works, in addition to textbooks, dictionaries, ethnographical writings, and translations, demonstrates that Christian Yiddishism had implications past its in simple terms linguistic and philological dimensions. certainly, Christian texts on Yiddish display not just the ways that Christians perceived and outlined Jews and Judaism, but in addition, in a contrasting vein, how they considered their very own language, faith, and culture.
