Synopsis

Focusing on the figure of the rabbi, this

book provides a vivid picture of Italian Jewry during the Renaissance. The

author discusses Jewish life of the period (c.1450-1600)

in its social, institutional, and cultural aspects, placing them against the

backdrop of the wider Catholic environment to give an original interpretation

of how Jewish cultural and religious life developed in the Renaissance context.

Particular attention is given to changes in the status and functions of the

rabbis and to the relations between the rabbinate and the lay leadership. Of

special interest is the exploration of the cultural world of the rabbis and the

broader issue of intellectual developments at the time.







Essentially a translation of Part I of

the Hebrew edition, which won wide acclaim for its perspective, Rabbis and Jewish Communities in Renaissance

Italy has been carefully adapted for an English-speaking readership.

Substantial excerpts from the appendices have been incorporated into the text

so that the evidence necessary to support the arguments is easily accessible.
