This article adapts to Johannes Reuchlin’s De arte cabalistica (1517) the scheme of the Jew as ‘devil advocate’, which Carlo Ginzburg had applied especially to Thomas Woolston’s Six Discourses (1727-1729). One of the main assumptions of the article is that Reuchlin, in the De arte cabalistica, recurs to the figure of the Jew Simon as his alter ego. Of particular interest is the passage in the treatise where the character of Simon seems to reflect Reuchlin’s view regarding the Jewishness of Jesus.

Abstract

This article adapts to Johannes Reuchlin’s De arte cabalistica (1517) the scheme of the Jew as ‘devil advocate’, which Carlo Ginzburg had applied especially to Thomas Woolston’s Six Discourses (1727-1729). One of the main assumptions of the article is that Reuchlin, in the De arte cabalistica, recurs to the figure of the Jew Simon as his alter ego. Of particular interest is the passage in the treatise where the character of Simon seems to reflect Reuchlin’s view regarding the Jewishness of Jesus.
