The focus of this work is Leon Modena's polemic masterpiece, the Magen Wa-Hereb, "Shield and Sword". It makes this important document in Jewish polemical thought accessible to students of comparative religion and persons interested in inter-religious relations. Modena's work is a delicately nuanced text, written in a sparkling style with wit and charm. This translation avoids a wooden rendering, being honest to the original, trying to bring the reader as close as possible to the honest feeling of the original as well as to its sense.
