It is a bit identified incontrovertible fact that there were greater than fifty renowned Jewish Messiahs. those characters, even though unrenowned this present day, encouraged messianic fervour that from time to time seized the full Jewish, Christian, Muslim or even secular worlds.

The tales of those fifty Messiahs, either female and male, are unknown -- suppressed by way of Jewish spiritual experts or neglected by way of historians of all religions. Until now. during this publication, those Jewish Messiahs are remembered, and now their forgotten tales -- no matter if funny, strange, tragic or solemn -- are eventually advised. The Messiah who killed the Pope; The Messiah who was once stored from the Inquisition while the Pope concealed him within the Vatican; The Messiah who demanded that his head be bring to a halt with a purpose to turn out his immortality The Messiah who defied the Holy Roman Emperor; The seventeenth century Messiah whose fans persevered their mystery society into the twentieth century. And to modern instances and the tale of the overdue Lubavitcher Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson, and the way he encouraged a passionate and dedicated following.

Above all, Fifty Jewish Messiahs examines humanity, no longer divinity, and background instead of theology. Taken jointly, those interesting tales paint a bright portrait of the common and undying human desire for optimism, and desire in a greater future.
