  • Jewish Life in Medieval Spain: An Introduction

    Jewish Life in Medieval Spain: An Introduction
    Wednesday evening, March 7, and Thursday evenings, March 15 & 22, 7:30-9pm
    with Dr. Fran Malino, Sophia Moses Robison Professor of Jewish Studies and History at Wellesley College and Rabbi Toba Spitzer

    Jewish history in Spain began in the Roman period, reached its “golden age” under the Umayyad Caliphs in Andalusia and continued until the expulsion of 1492. On March 7 and 22, CDT’s own Fran Malino will explore the pre-Islamic and early Islamic context for the flowering of Jewish culture in Spain, as well as give an introduction to the great sweep of Spanish Jewish history under both Islam and Christianity. On March 15, Rabbi Toba will explore the creation of the Zohar, the great foundational text of Jewish mysticism, and various theories of its creation in 13th century Spain.
