Imagining the Renaissance / Defining the Jews January 2020 Jerusalem

The Humanities and Social Sciences Fund Conference on “Imagining the Renaissance / Defining the Jews”

Jerusalem, January 12 – 15, 2020

This meeting will move the focus to the intellectual and material culture of Italian Jews. We seek to cast light on the deep influence exercised by Jews in intellectual and material transformations that are considered typical of Italian Renaissance:  philosophy and esotericism, printing and book culture, literature, music, artistic and non-artistic objects, figurative arts, housing and styles of living, religion and spirituality, trajectories of wealth and poverty, artistic patronage and antiquarianism.
