This class first takes a look at the battle between the Maharal and Azariah de Rossi as an example of the struggle between tradition and modernity. Then we lay the ground work for understanding the socio-economic status of European Jewry in the 17th century.
This lecture is part of the 5780 Pardes Community Education Spring session, January 12, 2020 – March 26, 2020.
