Description

The second ground-breaking German Judaica exhibition (following #231), presenting, on a monumental scale, all aspects of German Jewish life and history along the Rhine. The exhibition’s colossal Katalog provides unprecedented scholarly coverage of the show’s overall themes and displays, and presents detailed, often extensive, entries for each exhibit, as well as numerous illustrations. Material presented in five parts: Section A: “Sonderschau: Nachwirkungen des Alten Bundes in der christlichen Kunst” [Special display: Aftermath of the Old Testament in Christian Art]; Section B: “Dokumentation der politischen, rechtlichen, sozialen und wirtschaftlichen Geschichte der Juden in Deutschland” [Documentation of the political, legal, social and economic history of the Jews of Germany]; Section C: “Vom jüdischen Beitrag zur Kunst, Literatur und Wissenschaft” [On the Jewish contribution to art, literature and science]; Section D: “Jüdisches Geistesleben am Rhein” [Jewish spiritual life on the Rhine]; Section E: “Das jüdische Jahr” [The Jewish Year]. 2,029 numbered items.

Description

The Katalog volume is accompanied by an equally substantial Handbuch with scholarly texts pertaining to nearly every aspect of the history of Rhine Jewry, including Jewish communal institutions, Jewish-Christian relations, Court Jews, religious life, holidays, etc.
