The 11th century isn’t noted in history for its peaceful interfaith relations. And yet, at that time, Christians and Jews alike came from all over Europe to seek the wisdom of the Rabbi of Worms, a French scholar whose commentaries on the scriptures are still used today. Host Frank Stasio talks to writer Marie Hammond about her historical fiction, "The Rabbi of Worms."
