Out of an inner humility and harmony Klausner fashioned
for himself a simple, lucid, expository Hebrew style which won
him myriads of readers. His ability to weed out the inessential
and the inconsequential, his
culte faits,
his infatuation with
details and his penchant for generalization—these qualities gained
him the admiration of colleagues and disciples. His contagious
enthusiasm for the history, the literature, the language and life
of his people has assured him a permanent place in the cultural
annals of Jewry.
