Perception and Awareness
Artefacts and Imageries in Medieval European Jewish Cultures
edited by Elisheva Baumgarten, Elisabeth Hollender, Katrin Kogman Appel and Ephraim Shoham-Steiner
What did the world look like for Jews living in medieval Europe? How did they perceive and make use of the elements of their daily life, from items on the street to religious iconography within holy spaces - in particular synagogues and at the exterior of churches - and profane elements from the home? And how did they experience the visual and material cultures of their non-Jewish neighbours?

These questions form the core of this volume, which explores pre-modern Jewish approaches to images and material objects from a variety of perspectives. From clothing to manuscripts, and from lighting devices to the understanding of the invisible, the chapters gathered together in this multifaceted volume combine analyses of images and artefacts together with in-depth analyses of texts to offer fresh insights into the visual cultures that informed the world of European Jews in the Middle Ages.
