The Star of Redemption
Franz Rosenzweig
Translated by Barbara E. Galli
Foreword by Michael Oppenheim, Introduction by Elliot R. Wolfson


Modern Jewish Philosophy and Religion: Translations and Critical Studies
Elliot Wolfson and Barbara Galli, Series Editors



One of the most important books of the twentieth century

The Star of Redemption is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding religion and philosophy. Fusing philosophy and theology, the book assigns both Judaism and Christianity distinct but equally important roles in the spiritual structure of the world and finds in both biblical religions approaches to a comprehension of reality.

The major themes and motifs of The Star—the birth, life, death, and immortality of the soul; Eastern philosophies and Jewish mysticism; the relationship between God, world, and humanity over time; and revelation as the real biblical miracle of faith and path to redemption—resonate meaningfully.

Franz Rosenzweig (1886–1929) helped establish Das freie jüdische Lehrhaus (Free House of Jewish Learning) in Frankfurt-am-Main. Rosenzweig is one of the greatest contributors to Jewish philosophy in the twentieth century.

A reprint of Rosenzweig’s classic On Jewish Learning is also available from the University of Wisconsin Press.
