Seminar I Medieval Hebrew Palaeography: Methods and Typology of Hebrew Scripts


Prof. Judith Schlanger (EPHE, Paris and Oxford), Visiting Professor

During this intensive course, Prof. Judith Olszowy-Schlanger (University of Oxford, École Pratique des Hautes Études) taught an intensive seminar on 9 th -15 th century Hebrew palaeography from across the Jewish world. After familiarizing us with the major typological groups of medieval Hebrew script, we had the opportunity to test our knowledge at the National Library of Israel, where Prof. Olszowy-Schlanger showed us a collection of fascinating manuscripts. The seminar provided us with new insights into palaeography and how to use it in our own research.
