Abstract

This article poses the question as to whether Edith Stein could be regarded as a case of dual religious belonging. After explaining why dual religious belonging is becoming more frequent today, the article examines written evidence of Edith Stein's religious journey to assess the extent of her Jewish faith as far as that can be done. It is concluded that she appears not to have had a very deep religious enculturation into the Jewish faith, and nor did she draw on that after her conversion. She is thus not seen as a case of dual belonging.
