Documents and bibliographic works that illuminate various periods of Jewish history in Portugal: the great intellectual and artistic flowering in the 12th–15th C, the development of heterodox thought in the 17th C, the welcoming of the Jews’ return in the 19th–20th C, and the role in saving Jews from the Holocaust. Six essays contextualize these historical documents, including one on manuscripts and printed books. Detailed descriptive entries. 104 items.

The exhibition was planned to debut in 1997 at the Jewish National and University Library, Jerusalem (May–June 1997), as indicated in the catalog. It instead opened two years later at the Newberry Library, Chicago.
