Description
``The Jewish Pope``, the story of Elchanan, the son of R. Shimeon of Mayence, who was kidnapped from his home, grew up as a Christian, became a pope, and finally returned to his father`s home and to Judaism, is one of the most famous Jewish folktales. This book employs the methodology of thematology in order to research the sources of this legend and its transformations and appearances, from the oldest sources in medieval manuscripts up to its appearance in the 19th-century historical novel by M. Lehman, Rabbi Elchanan.
From the series Thema - Thematological Studies in the Literature of the Jewish People.
