The Zionist Central Council and the Jewish Representative Council of Greater Manchester and Region are pleased to announce the 2014 series of Sherman Lectures will have a theme of "Thinking about Jews in Medieval Europe: Explorations with Text, Images and Sounds".
They will be presented by Prof. Miri Rubin who is a professor of Medieval and Early Modern History at Queen Mary University of London. The community lecture by Prof. Rubin will be entitled "Jews in Medieval English Culture". Jews were embedded in the ideas and practices of every community of which they formed a part. Yet the experience of living as a Jew or with Jews varied greatly between European regions and over time. This lecture will consider the circumstances surrounding the settlement of Jews, and the interactions and attitudes that developed towards them. It will point out, in particular, the diverse attitudes and interactions experienced in different milieus: monastic, urban, scholastic, courtly, as well as in Latin, English and French.
The dates of the University Lectures are 12-15 May 2014. Time: 5:15pm. Venue: Kanaris Lecture Theatre, Manchester Museum (located centrally on the University of Manchester campus) for further information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
