A literate, suspenseful retelling of the story of the 1656 interrogation of philosopher Baruch De Spinoza, New Jerusalem examines the clash between religion and modernity, faith and
philosophy—questions that human beings continue to grapple with. The
Washington Post raved, “A gallery of intriguing characters, nonstop enlightened argument and even—hold the phone—a socko finish.”
Culminating with a national symposium debating the continuing writ of excommunication against Spinoza.
