Summary
Elijah ben Solomon, the 'Genius of Vilna', was perhaps the best-known and most understudied figure in modern Jewish history. This book offers a new narrative of Jewish modernity based on Elijah's life and influence. While the experience of Jews in modernity has often been described as a process of Western European secularisation - with Jews becoming citizens of Western nation-states, congregants of reformed synagogues, and assimilated members of society - the book uses Elijah's story to highlight a different theory of modernisation for European life
