The Curse of Ham: Race and Slavery in Early Judaism, Christianity, and Islam

The Curse of Ham: Race and Slavery in Early Judaism, Christianity, and Islam by David M. Goldenberg
English | Nov. 2, 2003 | ISBN: 069111465X | 468 Pages | PDF | 2MB

How old is prejudice against black people? Were the racist attitudes that fueled the Atlantic slave trade firmly in place 700 years before the European discovery of sub-Saharan Africa?
In this groundbreaking book, David Goldenberg seeks to discover how dark-skinned peoples, especially black Africans, were portrayed in the Bible and by those who interpreted the Bible-Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Unprecedented in rigor and breadth, his investigation covers a 1,500-year period, from ancient Israel (around 800 B.C.E.) to the eighth century C.E., after the birth of Islam. By tracing the development of anti-Black sentiment during this time, Goldenberg uncovers views about race, color, and slavery that took shape over the centuries-most centrally, the belief that the biblical Ham and his descendants, the black Africans, had been cursed by God with eternal slavery.
