Exploring a Forgotten World: A Social History of Medieval Jewry as Revealed in the Cairo Genizah
This course will reveal how a collection of worn-out scraps, fragments of texts and other manuscripts and documents found more than 1,000 years ago open an otherwise hidden era of history. We will learn the story of the Genizah (a storeroom for timeworn sacred manuscripts and documents) as well as examine selected contents of the Genizah. Through translations of the original texts, the course will explore the daily lives and behaviors of Jewish men, women and families living along the Mediterranean during the Middle Ages.

Day: Tuesdays, January 12 - March 23, 2021
Time: 10:00 - 11:30 am via Zoom
Faculty: Dr. Joellyn Zollman
