520    Early Modern Jewry boldly offers a new history of the 
       early modern Jewish experience. From Krakow and Venice to 
       Amsterdam and Smyrna, David Ruderman examines the 
       historical and cultural factors unique to Jewish 
       communities throughout Europe, and how these distinctions 
       played out amidst the rest of society. Looking at how 
       Jewish settlements in the early modern period were linked 
       to one another in fascinating ways, he shows how Jews were
       communicating with each other and were more aware of their
       economic, social, and religious connections than ever 
       before. Ruderman explores five crucial and powerful 
       characteristics uniting Jewish communities: a mobility 
       leading to enhanced contacts between Jews of differing 
       backgrounds, traditions, and languages, as well as between
       Jews and non-Jews; a heightened sense of communal cohesion
       throughout all Jewish settlements that revealed the rising
       power of lay oligarchies; a knowledge explosion brought 
       about by the printing press, the growing interest in 
       Jewish books by Christian readers, an expanded curriculum 
       of Jewish learning, and the entrance of Jewish elites into
       universities; a crisis of rabbinic authority expressed 
       through active messianism, mystical prophecy, radical 
       enthusiasm, and heresy; and the blurring of religious 
       identities, impacting such groups as conversos, Sabbateans,
       individual converts to Christianity, and Christian 
       Hebraists. In describing an early modern Jewish culture, 
       Early Modern Jewry reconstructs a distinct epoch in 
       history and provides essential background for 
       understanding the modern Jewish experience
