Description

How Jews, Christians and Muslims together contributed to the development of the book. Particular emphasis upon the way in which Hebrew manuscripts—their writing styles, decoration, script types and genres—mirror those of the dominant culture, and thus reflect the social and cultural interaction between the Jews and their non-Jewish neighbors. 10 essays, including: “The Script and Book Craft in the Hebrew Medieval Codex” (Malachi Beit-Arié), “Early Ashkenazic Prayer Books and Their Christian Illuminators” (Eva Frojmovič), “The Oppenheimer Siddur” (Suzanne Wijsman), “Jews and Christians Imagining the Temple” (Lesley Smith), and “Christian Hebraism in Thirteenth-century England” (Judith Olszowy-Schlanger). Index of manuscripts. Captioned images. 84 items.
