Feb 14 '17 at 16:25 comment added mevaqesh The beit Yosef was the result of the ashkenization of Spain following the fall of Andalusia. I discuss this phenomenon at length in the link regarding fundamentalism. I never claimed that only ethnic Germans opposed de Rossi. Nor did I claim that maharals approach is literalist. You can read my liked post regarding the views of the geonim and rishonim which also references maharals view.Note also the link to r. Eisens incredibly thorough piece on maharal and aggadot.
Feb 14 '17 at 16:04 comment added wfb btw, the Beis Yosef signed the ban against Meor Einayim, so it wasn't just those primitive ashkenazim. Also, the Maharal's interpretation of aggadah isn't literalist, rather his point is that Chazal were not describing the surface events of the historians, but their deeper meaning. See Ruderman's Jewish Thought and Scientific Discovery in Early Modern Europe
