This chapter discusses the role of the German Jewry in the increase in the diversity of Jewish modernity in the late Middle Ages. The German Jews had played a leading role during the first half-century of Jewish modernity partly because of the decisive role Germany itself played during the years when the middle of Europe became the hinge on which world events turned. Another reason was the accomplishments of the German Jews themselves in fighting for complete self-determination.
