Abstract

Savages or blissful believers? The ways of maskil criticism about the ”miracle-working rabbi” in the main weekly of Neolog movement until 1918 Modernity and enlightenment fundamentally changed the relationship between religion, community, individual and the State. Haskalah, the Jewish enlighten-ment that appeared at the turn of the 18th-19th centuries brought the adoption of the enlightened values of western society. Hungarian Neology, consciously modernising and supported by the authorities and political elite, joined in the general discourses of Jewish enlightenment and attacked the models of the traditional Jewish way of life. Egyenlőség, the weekly paper of Neology, became one of the important attitude-shaping forums of this effort. Orthodox rabbinical pres-tige striving for traditionality was attacked in its pages, as well as the Orthodox institutional system that became officially independent from 1871. The image of the miracle-working rabbis of Galicia supplied the binary opposition of its own values for Neology. The Meturgeman column of Egyenlőség referred in its name to the correct translation and correct interpretation of the sacred texts, while the tradition was subjected to rational critique on its pages. Hasidism, as the classical example of backwardness, was regarded as the absolute opposite of the ideal type of modern Jewish Neology. The Neology press Egyenlőség (Equality), in the spirit of the rationalism of the Enlightenment, its empirical demand and histori-cal attitude, often rationalised religious traditions as folklore or part of the reli-gious historical past. The Orthodox press also criticised this, often in the form of strongly worded letters from readers in defence of the Sacred Torah and the religious authorities.
