Seminar | Prof. Eva Haverkamp


Prof. Eva Haverkamp, Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich

Prof. Eva Haverkamp discussed the economic status of the Jews of medieval Ashkenaz, and in particular their involvement in trade and loans. She challenged the accepted view stating that Jews had a monopoly over the interest loans market, and presented new methodological attitudes for the study of their economic history. Next, she presented two archival documents showing that Jews implemented their own religious law and community regulations also in their dealings with Christian courts and debtors.
