Interview 13 - Chaim Noll, German-Israeli Writer - Shemot

The Schrift - Ancient Jewish Wisdom for Modern Times by Steven Toby Weinberg

Episode notes

In his 1940 work Moses and Monotheism, Freud made the provocative claim that Moses might have been an Egyptian! Even today, and even in secular circles, few would dare to voice this theory at the Passover Seder. Yet, Chaim Noll, German-Israeli writer and DDR dissident, explains why Moshe has far more controversy surrounding him than his lineage. In fact, it was Moshe's fondness for THE DESERT which was truly scandalous, at least by ancient standards.
