Author of The Nazarene is Scholem Asch. He was born in Kutno, Poland in 1880. Scholem is of Jewish Heritage and was raised in a large family and grew up receiving a Jewish education. He soon after went to Wloclawek where he received a more well rounded education.
Author of the Nazarene Scholem Asch began his writing career writing in the Hebrew language. He soon after switched to writing in Yiddish. In 1919 he wrote Kiddush ha-Shem which was one of the first historical novels written in the Yiddish language. He went on to write many plays, short stories, and novels throughout his career. One of his plays called “God of Vengeance” was performed on Broadway. The play caused much controversy as it was set in a brothel and featured a lesbian relationship. Many of the actors and actresses were arrested on obscenity charges and prosecuted for their actions.
The Nazarene may be one of the most controversial books he wrote based on where he came from. The book offended Jewish sensibilities and caused him to be dropped as a writer from a Yiddish newspaper in New York. Scholem Asch was also attacked for promoting Christianity for this book he wrote. He spent his last days in a city near Tel Aviv, Israel called Bat Yam which in now the Scholem Asch Museum. A museum dedicated to his work. The majority of his writing is now kept at Yale University. Scholem Asch passed away in 1957 in London and will long be remembered for his literary work as well as the controversy of the book The Nazarene.
