Summary (From the publisher):

This monumental work has been called a novelized story of civilization. The Wandering Jew is a cosmic symbol he is man, he is woman, he is sex, he is history...he is life itself. Cartaphilius, alias Isaac Laquedem, is not the aged, sad-eyed wanderer of the tradition, but an elegant young man, kin to Faust, Don Juan and Casanova. His love for the Princess Salome winds itself like a red thread through this story of the ages. If Cartaphilius is the superman, then Salome shows us the super woman. Dramatically interwoven with Laquedem's confessions are portraits of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Nero, Atilla, Mohammed, Don Juan, Leonardo da Vinci, Pope Alexander, Rothschild, Spinoza, coming right up to the twentieth century with Einstein, George Bernard Shaw, Lenin, and Mussolini. The philosophic conception of reincarnation and the Freudian theme of repetition compulsion are the leitmotif of the book. The most startling episodes have historical and scientific bases.
