To return
to the original question, does anyone know if Jonas Kaufmann is of
Jewish origin...

He is from an old Catholic family.
 but what is
"an old Catholic family"?  Does this mean that his parents had their
children late in life? (of course not) That the family has been
Catholic for many generations?

I am sorry that I started a controversy!  I mean exactly as you say,
family has been Catholic for many generations."

best regards,


Apologies from me as well. No controversy intended, but it was
entirely my fault!
