Enlightenment and Diaspora: The Armenian and Jewish Cases
Richard G. Hovannisian, David N. Myers
Scholars Press, 1999 - Religion - 283 pages
Scholars address the comparative historical paths of Jews and Armenians in absorbing and disseminating the values of the Enlightenment', and challenge conventional assumptions about the Enlightenment movement in Central and Western Europe. They explore the relationship between traditional religious sensibilities and new Enlightenment values, and the relationship among Enlightenment, diaspora, and nationalism. Material emerged out of a conference held at the University of California-Los Angeles in November 1995. Formerly distributed by Scholars Press (now defunct); the UCLA Center for Near Eastern Studies now distributes this volume and others in the series.
