Jews, Church, & Civilization VII

INTRODUCTION

1965 CE:  FEYNMAN

Richard Feynman is co–winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics.

Son of Melville Feynman, 1895 immigrant from Minsk, Russia.

Richard’s resume notes Far Rockaway High School, MIT, Princeton, the Manhattan Project, Cal Tech, and Challenger Disaster Commission.

He went to MIT in Boston, because he had been blocked from attending Columbia University by its Jewish quota. Very upstanding people.

Feynman: “Scientific advance is the confidence in the ignorance of experts”

 

1965 CE:  REV. EDWARD FLANNERY

Publishes “The Anguish of the Jews.”

Subtitled “A Catholic priest writes of 23 centuries of anti–Semitism.”

After (a diplomatic) 21 pages covering the ancient world, where the Jews were often the social elite and/or wealthy communities, Flannery devotes the next 252 pages covering Church–inspired or directed anti–Semitism, when the Jews were not in such good measure—as a consequence of the Church.

Flannery does what none of the Jewish historians had done: He produces the first important work (that I am aware of) comprehensively documenting the Church’s central and multi–century–long role in anti–Semitism.
