Transforming Relations is a collection of original essays on the history of Jews and Christians in antiquity, the Middle Ages, and the modern era that honors the influential work of Michael A. Signer (1945-2009). Reflecting the breadth of Signer's research and pedagogical interests, the essays treat various aspects of the Jewish-Christian relationship through the centuries, from the divine law in antiquity to philosemitism in contemporary Christianity, from scriptural interpretation in the twelfth century to Christian Hebraism in the fifteenth, and from the presentation of Christianity in the Talmud and Midrashim to modern Christian understandings of Judaism. The essays are unified in their emphases on two principles that pervade Signer's own scholarly work: that the sacred texts shared by Jews and Christians serve simultaneously as a point of convergence and divergence for the two religious communities, and that modern practitioners of Judaism and Christianity must recognize and appreciate the other as part of a living tradition.

A fitting tribute to Signer's wide-ranging work, the volume aims to complement and continue his passionate and learned work of transforming relations between Jews and Christians. It will appeal to a broad readership, including historians of Judaism and Christianity, scholars of the Middle Ages, students of the history of biblical exegesis, and systematic theologians.

Lines Written after Reading Celan
for Michael
Your name wanders through night and day. Uncompanionably, it may find you, though You will neither have gone nor arrived. Its touch So pure, you will never know that you were known.
Your name drips from the small hands of the clock. Incomprehensibly, it may find you, though You were lost in the infinite labyrinth of doubt. Its touch So violent, you will never know that you are gone.
The leaves copper in August covering up why. Their rustle shouts down the almost Impossibly dident conversation between you And you across the acres of hurt, borderlands To keep promise promise and outcome itself.
Easiest to be in love with what should be. Admittedly, you did not hit the mark of you. But what you have become is the apple love’s Arrow throws in its way to pierce, remind it Of how imperfectly it is.
Easiest to hate the promiser who did not keep Faith with the setting out. But remember the angel Judges harshly because he sees too much and not enough. Love reaches backward as well as forward. It burns The electric flesh into any word it now finds.
