Jewish Life in the Middle Ages Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Highly readable social history comprehensively examines life of European Jews, from approximately the late 10th-century to the early 1500s. Topics include social functions of the synagogue, communal organizations, love, courtship and marriage, monogamy and home life, trades and occupations, medieval pastimes and personal relations between Christians and Jews.

Book News Annotation:

In this reissue of the 1894 Macmillan edition, Abrahams (d. 1925) introduces his survey of Jewish life in the 9th to 14th centuries by contrasting the cosmopolitan outlook of Jews of the period with Christian feudalism. The noted British rabbinics scholar discusses the synagogue as the center of Jewish life, and all aspects of social and business life--including Jewish-Christian relations and Jews' "special relation towards the government." Indexed by Hebrew authority and general subject.
