Pinchas Sadeh's Religiosity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article presents Sadeh's religious world, i.e., the theological ideas he introduces in his essays, and demonstrates that despite growing closer to Judaism, he did not change his ideas—he simply enunciated them in a “Jewish” language. The last section analyzes Sadeh's religiosity within a broader context, particularly within the entire scope of attempts by Israeli intellectuals to define their Jewish identity and their attitude towards religious tradition.
