David H. Price is a professor in the departments of Jewish studies, religious studies, art history, and history at Vanderbilt University. In his Academy project, Price is tracing Jewish intellectual contributions to the expansion of religious toleration in Europe through the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Figures such as Leon Modena (1571-1648) and Menasseh ben Israel (1604-1657), the first Jews to address Christians in their theological works, inspired many Christian publications on Judaism and toleration, including the legal toleration of Jews.
