Review

Entdecktes Judenthum is the most malignant attack that Judaism has ever sustained. --Rev. Isidore Harris --The Thinker: A Review of Worldwide Christian Thought, p. 498.

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

The editor, Mr. Hoffman, offers this book for $19. It is unfortunate Eisenmenger's other books are not translated. I'm considering undertaking that project myself. In the meantime, you won't be disappointed. This a badly needed critique of Talmudic Judaism. Israel Shahak lifted a lot of his material from Eisenmenger. And many others have been inspired to study the anti-Christian and anti-nonjewish rhetoric of the Talmud. It was Eisenmenger who opened Western eyes to what was hidden in the Hebrew tongue. Eisenmenger studied the Talmud in its original language and was shocked at what he read. Eisenmenger has done the public a great service, and his works are a blessing for us today.

"The Traditions of the Jews" 1748, Stehelin's selected English translation of Eisenmenger's "Entdecktes Judenthum", remained in obscurity for over 250 years until this republication by Independent History & Research. The 1700 Eisenmenger book has been kept in rabbinical libraries as their own secret source of authentic Jewish beliefs. In his introduction, Michael A. Hoffman II sets the work in its Enlightenment context. Though Enlightenment philosophers were re-examining the Churchianity and priestcraft then current among Christian denominations, Judaic intellectuals such as Saul Ascher rejected the re-examination of Judaism.

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.

This book is a wealth of information. And although it is a photocopy of the original 1748 edition, and for that reason is a little hard to read it is well worth the effort if you want the truth about Rabbinic Judaism. Eisenmenger knew Rabbinic Judaism inside and out, backwards and forwards, and has exposed it for what it is. The quote and referances from the Talmud and other rabbinic writings are accurate.

No wonder this was the most hated and burned book by the Rabbis outside of the Brit Hadashah (New Testament).

It is 879 pages so don't expect to read it in an evening.

Some may feel this review may be based on anti-Jewish sentiment, nothing could be further from the truth, I am Jewish, my wife and I spend as much time as we can in Israel.

This book has been suppressed for almost 300 years. Why?

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.

Colassal. Epic. The 90 page Introduction by Hoffman alone is worth the price. A lost treasure recovered after 'dark ages'. A must for any serious student of our times.

this is truly one of the best books about subject. This book was banned in the austrian empire by the Hapsburg Emperor Leopold I because he was influenced/bribed by the leading rabbis of that time; moreover, the jews bankrolled the Austrian army. This resulted making this book one of the most suppressed book of all time despite it being one of the most scholarly and well written books in the history of humanity. the writer also received death threats from jews as well as an offer to sell his book so the jews can destroy it.

I found this book extremely enlightening and it distills the talmud, the real jewish religion/tradition (since talmud and not torah that takes precedence on the jews). Please read this book before it become banned again...they are working on it.
