Scholars have largely examined and identified the historical and philosophical forces prevalent in Germany during the nineteenth century1 which, after having brought about a Wissenschaft des Judentums (a scholarly investigation into Judaism at large in all its various disciplines), eventually led to the establishment of the first rabbinical seminaries in Europe. Although, according to Richard Schaeffler, 'Wissenschaft des Judentums is as old as Judaism itself', it was in its specific German understanding of Wissenschaft a specific product of nineteenth-century German Geistesgeschichte.
