Share The Amazing Adventures of a Hebrew Manuscript from Medieval England

Event Details

Hebrew manuscripts produced in medieval England have been attracting increasing scholarly attention. Scholars have shed light on Hebrew manuscripts written by Jews before the expulsion of 1290 and revealed the persistence of Hebraic studies in post-expulsion England. In this lecture, we will trace the extraordinary story of one Hebrew manuscript written in pre-expulsion England. Who wrote it? Who owned it? Who stole it? Who tried to describe it? The history of its transmission and of attempts to decode it will open windows on a debate about the authenticity of the Hebrew Bible in Renaissance Europe (and finally, the current location of the manuscript will be revealed!).
