Christian Philosemitism is a new genre of research into the development of the positive response by Evangelicals towards the Jews from the Puritan era. Lewis Way has been chosen as the leading example of Evangelical Anglican philosemitism between 1810 and 1840. The London Jews Society (LJS) was founded in 1809, Way was actively involved from 1811 and his substantial financial gift rescued the Society from ruin in 1815. Christian Philosemitism developed from the Puritan period and was strengthened by the Readmission of the Jews in 1656. A new impetus was given at the end of the eighteenth century, when in the challenging context of the social, religious and political upheaval in England following the French Revolution the LJS was founded.
