A Peek into the Classroom, Going to School in Medieval Jewish Communities

10 09 2009

On Monday 22nd June 2009 Professor Judith Olszowy-Schlanger, Professor of Medieval Hebrew Palaeography at the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes (Sorbonne), Paris, presented a fascinating paper at the John Rylands Library, Deansgate, Manchester. The free public lecture was organised by the AHRC Rylands Cairo Genizah Project as an opportunity to share our research with the general public. Using examples from the Rylands Cairo Genizah collection, along with other Genizah sources, Professor Olszowy-Schlanger demonstrated how the Manuscripts are crucial pieces of evidence which can help us to understand what life was like in Medieval Jewish Communities.
