Books within books: un database dedicato alla cultura ebraica nell’Europa medievale

110-b7c2bcf3c50daed5ed2b3221a0713eac

Books within books: Hebrew Fragments in European Libraries è l’interessante progetto europeo che si propone di ricostruire la presenza della cultura ebraica nell’Europa medievale attraverso lo studio e l’inventariazione dei frammenti di testi e documenti in lingua ebraica riutilizzati nelle rilegature e nei documenti notarili.

Hebrew manuscripts are important and often unique witnesses of Jewish presence and intellectual activities in medieval Europe. Only a small percentage of the books and writings produced in the past have been preserved. The corpus of fragments reused in bindings has considerably enriched our knowledge of medieval Hebrew manuscripts. Thousands of such fragments have been identified in various libraries and collections in Austria, England, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and Czech Republic. The richness and diversity of this corpus, referred to as well as the ‘European Genizah’, by analogy to the treasure trove of Hebrew fragments recovered from the Cairo Genizah, offers a unique opportunity to reconstruct the history of the Hebrew book and of the Jewish communities in Medieval Europe”.
