Seminar | Voices from the Margins: Documents from the Beit Din of Ashkenaz as Documentation of the Lives of Ordinary Men and Women


Dr. Rachel Furst, LMU Munich

Dr. Furst discussed the medieval Jewish courts in northern Europe. She focused on the ways in which legal documents can be used as sources illuminating the daily life of medieval Jews, especially those who turned to the court for help. By analyzing one particular case, she showed us how fruitful such an historical method could be.
