Whether or not one accepts every nuance of Goodwin's interpretation of Herbert's view of Jews and Judaism, she has written a landmark book on medieval Christian Hebraism. Her mastery of text and context, placing Herbert's Psalms commentary within the context of Herbert's life, the Christian history of Psalms interpretation and of the exegetical work of Herbert's teachers and contemporaries including the Victorian school, make it a model of its genre. Stephen Burnett, Church History and Religious Culture
This engaging, meticulously documented study explores the complex, sometimes conflicting motives of Christian hebraists. It locates Herbert of Bosham's twelfth-century Psalms commentary at the nexus of the intellectual and social movements of his day, and elucidates the complex situations that contributed to Christians' divergent perspectives on the Jews. Was the twelfth century a rare period of collaboration between Christian and Jewish exegetes, or did anti-Semitism originate in the texts of the era's Christian polemicists? Modern scholars have been divided on these questions. This study of Herbert's commentary, which relied on the Hebrew commentary of R. Solomon ben Isaac of Troyes, articulates a more nuanced, integrated approach to medieval Jewish-Christian relations, and provides transcriptions from the unpublished manuscript.
