Fate decreed that a certain Christian writer, Johann Andreas Eisenmenger, should have arisen...and concentrated the tradition of medieval anti-Jewish doctrines in his great work...His book was impressive on account of its size...and its tremendous erudition. Eisenmenger was well-versed in Hebrew, Aramaic and Arabic...In short, Eisenmenger was acquainted with all the literature a Jewish scholar of standing would have known. He had learned to use these books partly through contacts with Jewish scholars in Frankfort and Amsterdam...However, Eisenmenger surpassed his predecessors in his mastery of the sources and his ability to interpret them...Jacob Katz, From Prejudice to Destruction: Anti-Semitism, 1700-1933
Christian scholars used their immense, sometimes phenomenal learning to warn their brethren about the rising Jewish peril...as a whole, Wagenseil's collection was not comparable to the revelations in the volumes of Johann Andreas Eisenmenger...one of the most persistent gatherers of anti-Christian texts... --Frank Manuel --The Broken Staff: Judaism Through Christian Eyes

Contrary to establishment characterizations of Eisenmenger as prejudiced, Eisenmenger's opposition to Judaism was ideologically and intellectually based, in opposition to the prejudice and racism of Judaism that Eisenmenger documented.
Hoffman's footnote on p. 17 is priceless. His introduction to this book is a major educational Enlightenment.
Some examples of almost unimaginable rabbinic megalomania: P.717, p.418, p.557, p.349, p.573, p.296, p.364, p.370, and many others. The only trouble is that, to the modern mentality, they probably do not seem very strange. All of Eisenmenger's quotes are footnoted with the section of the Talmud or Kabbalah that they are taken from. Eisenmenger makes timely comments to the rabbinic literature he documents. The book is in plain language and I found it easy to read.

Thank you Independent History & Research
In 2 volumes totaling 2001 pages from 1701, Eisenmenger, a world-renowned scholar of Hebrew, Greek, Yiddish, and Aramaic at the University of Heidelberg, meticulously documented the authoritative doctrines of Judaism, Talmudic blasphemies against the Holy Family, genocidal and immoral imprecations against Christians, Judaism's distinctly non-Old-Testament theologies like reincarnation (!!!), bizarre demonic myths, and Satanic black magic. Jesus, who can neither deceive nor be deceived, meant exactly what he said, "synagogue of Satan."
Precisely because of Eisenmenger's accurate and irrefutable documentation, the rabbis bought the entire first printing of 2,000 copies and then arranged for the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold (a Protestant-convert-of-convenience-to-Catholicism who was indebted financially to the super wealthy financier Samuel Oppenheimer) to impound and then suppress the further publication of Eisenmenger's work. Eisenmenger died penniless because his life's work was seized, but his Entdecktes Judethum (Judaism Revealed) is so authoritative that the rabbis kept the first printing for their own reference!
Though the rabbis disparage Eisenmenger AND DENY EVERYTHING HE DOCUMENTED, they still use his flawless work for reference since he faithfully preserved the earliest Judaic works, many of which are lost to them today except for Eisenmenger!
In Traditions of the Jews, Stehlin translated into English 872 pages of the most important excerpts from Eisenmenger's German language work.
When you read this, you will have no more illusions whether Judaism is the "synagogue of Satan" or our "Elder Brother in the Faith." Puzzled who to believe, Jesus or Wojtyla? Buy this book.
"It seems likely that Stehelin, or his party, desired to publish Eisenmenger in English in order to show forth the annals Talmudic and Midrashic fantasies.Read more ›
