Spring 2015 Mini-Course
This course will explore the richness of Jewish life in the Middle Ages, as illuminated by the approximately 300,000 manuscripts housed in libraries and museums around the world – the vast majority of them now available via digital access with the click of a mouse. Everything from beautifully adorned Bible manuscripts to the jottings of anonymous people will be examined. Ability to read Hebrew (basic level) helpful, but not necessary. More here.
