The World of Italian Jewry

Credential Earned: 

The Jewish community of Rome is the oldest one in all of Europe, dating back to 200 BCE, but it is only a part of a complex and fascinating mosaic that is Italian Jewry. In this course we will examine the long Jewish presence in the Italian peninsula through the work of some of Italy's most eminent modern Jewish writers, as well as the writings of historians of Jewish Italy.

Students enroll in JWST 2720.
