Jewish History of Italy

Tuesdays 10:30 AM - 11:45 AM Starting August 6 (Eight Weeks)

When did the first Jews arrive in Italy and what was the condition that brought them there? There is an illustrious history regarding their arrival to Italian shores. Did they stay? Many did, but we will also study the continued migration into western and eastern Europe including expelled Sephardim from Spain. Yet, a Romani Jewish community stayed put and survived ghettoes and harsh treatment by Roman clergy and despots. This couse will also assess the contributions of notable Italian-Jewish scholars and their legacy. Instructor: Marden Paru; $70.
