The Middle Ages Alive: With the Click of a Mouse

Gary Rendsburg (Jewish Studies)

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.
