How Did Christian Biblical Commentary Influence the Torah Commentary of Rashbam

Posted October 23, 2013

Rashbam, the grandson of Rashi, wrote a Torah commentary that followed in the path of his grandfather’s commentary. Yet, unlike his grandfather, Rashbam explicitly addresses his polemical involvement with Christians as part of his commentary. Did Rashbam also communicate with Christians and discuss Biblical exegesis? We will explore at least one instance in which Rashbam’s explanation is quoted by Hugh of St. Victor. How does Rashbam’s approach shed light on Rashi’s view of Christian Biblical commentary?
