This volume contains a number of studies on Jewish-Christian re- lations, in which special attention is given to the Netherlands and England, and the texts of some recently discovered and other rare documents in the same field. The work originates in a symposium on this subject held on 23 January 1985 at the University of Leiden under the auspices of the Sir Thomas Browne Institute for the study of Anglo-Dutch relations. Various authors have contributed to this volume. Each author is responsible for his own contribu- tion; thus, in cases of discrepancies in interpretation, orthography or method of transcription we have made no attempt at harmoni- zation. We thank all those who have made publication possible. The Stichting Dr Hendrik Muller's Vaderlandsch Fonds gave a gener- ous grant in defrayal of the cost of printing, and the Ir. F.E.D. Enschede-Stichting kindly covered the additional expenses re- sulting from the translation and editing of some of the contribu- tions. Last but not least we should like to thank Prof. R.H. Pop- kin for his stimulating interest in the publication of this volume.
