Biographical notes:

Emanuel Deutsch was born in Germany of Jewish descent. He worked as a book cataloger for the British Museum, and in 1866 published an article in the Quarterly review, introducing the Talmud to a Christian audience and seeking to ease relations between the two religions. He visited Palestine in 1869 and became a Zionist. His friendship with George Eliot influenced her Zionist tendencies, espoused in her novel Daniel Deronda, in which the character of Mordecai is modeled on Deutsch.
