Product Description

The Atlas of Medieval Jewish History is a comprehensive visual introduction to the history of the Jewish people in the Middle Ages. The atlas includes more than one hundred maps with accompanying text that give an in-depth review of Jewish history throughout the world from the 5th to the 17th centuries. It covers milestone events of Jewish history during this period: the dispersion of the Jews in the 4th and 5th centuries up to the Crusades, the Black Death, the expulsion from Spain; the persecutions of 1648 in eastern Europe, and the Sabbatean movement. The maps and text in the Atlas of Medieval Jewish History illustrate the sequence of persecution, expulsion, migration, and destruction on one hand, and a spiritual, religious, and cultural flowering on the other.
