Jütte is the author of Das Zeitalter des Geheimnisses: Juden, Christen und die Ökonomie des Geheimen, 1400–1800 (The Age of Secrecy: Jews, Christians, and the Economy of Secrets, 1400–1800). His book offers a general history of secrecy in the early modern period, with particular attention to the significance and role of secrecy and secret sciences in Jewish-Christian relations. Now available in a second German edition, the book has been awarded several prizes and has received critical acclaim. An Eng-lish translation will be published by Yale University Press.
His main book project at the moment deals with the cultural histo-ry of transitional spaces – such as windows, doors, and gates – from the Middle Ages to the modern period.
