This reading group is an opportunity to practice reading directly from images of medieval Hebrew manuscripts in an informal setting. All skill levels are welcome!
This term we will be looking at a range of documents and notes found within larger manuscripts. These have historical value as evidence of book history, and we will consider their palaeography, language, and historical context.
There will be coffee, tea and cake from 11 am in the Common Room of the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies for those attending in person. For further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
