Seminar | Religious Conversion and Jewish Daily Life in Medieval Europe


Prof. Paula Tartakoff, Rutgers University

Dr. Tartakoff discussed the similarities and differences between conversions from Judaism to Christianity in the Middle Ages, and conversions in the other direction. She focused on two examples of such conversions and showed that despite the social and cultural differences between the communities, conversion in both directions were sometimes historically linked. Thus, in some cases it may be helpful to consider these two kinds of conversion together.
