Bernard Heller, pioneer of Judaeo-Islamic relations

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


    Bernard Heller has been one of the most outstanding Jewish scholars of Hungary. As a disciple of the Ignaz Goldziher, but with even more knowledge of Jewish studies, Heller's contribution to folklore and comparative religions remains unsurpassed. As an homage to Jósef Szécsi, who tirelessly has worked for improving Jewish-Christian relations in Hungary, where anti-Semitism is still rampant, This article discusses Heller's view of the interdependency of midrash and Islamic stories, as one of the rare occasions that he was wrong.
