Prof. Menachem Kellner is working on a book on Maimonidean universalism and would like your help. He has published previously on this topic, in his Maimonides on Judaism and the Jewish People and Maimonides’ Confrontation with Mysticism, but this book contains new material.
Prof. Kellner has asked that we use the power of the internet, we crowdsource, to find particularist passages in Rambam’s writings, those that can be seen as indicating that he thought Jews are intrinsically distinct from (and superior to) Gentiles. This is, understandably, contrary to the way many read Rambam’s general approach. That is what it makes it so interesting.
Here are eight such sources Prof. Kellner provided (some from a secondary source) to start the exercise:
1) Hilkhos Teshuva II:10
2) H. Issurei Bi’ah XII:4-10
3) H. Issurei Bi’ah XIX:17
4) H. Matenos Aniyim I:1-2
5) H. Chovel u-Mazik V:10
6) H. Avadim IX.8
Commentary on the Mishnah
7) Bava Kama IV:3 (in connection with H. Nizkei Mammon VIII:5 and Melakhim X:12)
8) Avos V:18
Please provide additional sources in the comments, and make sure to note when you use secondary material.
