Product Overview

"Faithful Renderings" reads translation history through the lens of Jewish– Christian difference and, conversely, views Jewish– Christian difference as an effect of translation. Subjecting translation to a theological-political analysis, Seidman asks how the charged Jewish– Christian relationship— and more particularly the dependence of Christianity on the texts and translations of a rival religion— has haunted the theory and practice of translation in the West. 
Bringing together central issues in translation studies with episodes in Jewish– Christian history, Naomi Seidman considers a range of texts, from the Bible to Elie Wiesel’ s "Night," delving into such controversies as the accuracy of various Bible translations, the medieval use of converts from Judaism to Christianity as translators, the censorship of anti-Christian references in Jewish texts, and the translation of Holocaust testimony. "Faithful Renderings "ultimately reveals that translation is not a marginal phenomenon but rather a crucial issue for understanding the relations between Jews and Christians and indeed the development of each religious community.
