Strategies for Interpreting the Biblical Account of the Conquest of Canaan in German-Jewish Neo-Orthodoxy in the Late Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Centuries

(p.230) 9 The Embarrassment of Joshua
The Gift of the Land and the Fate of the Canaanites in Jewish Thought

This chapter examines the texts of four nineteenth-century German-Jewish thinkers: Heinrich Graetz (1817–1891), R. Samson Raphael Hirsch (1808–1888), Isaac Breuer (1883–1946), and his brother Raphael Breuer (1881–1932). In varying degrees, and partly between the lines, these thinkers attempted to minimize the tensions between the biblical account of the conquest of Canaan and modern standards of understanding and judging human behavior in history.
