Jewish Women and Books in Medieval and Renaissance Italy

Start: Jun 10, 2015 6:30:00 PM

Renaissance Italy
Prosperous Jews in Italy commissioned illuminated manuscripts for their personal use. Several of these, especially prayer books, were produced specifically for women. In some, the text was adjusted for recitation by a woman. Other manuscripts illustrated women performing religious rituals often assumed to have been practiced solely by men. This lecture will explore the role of women as patrons and how they were depicted in manuscripts from Italy.
