"As it is Written": Judaic Treasures from the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library

2015 •

Barry Dov Walfish

"The publication is an exhibition catalogue highlighting some of the Fisher Rare Book Library's Judaica holdings which span over 1000 years. It will touch on items that were produced every century from the 10th to the 21st, including biblical manuscripts, works of Jewish law and liturgy, incunabula, rare Constantinople imprints, and much more. Highlights are the manuscript of the Zohar, which belonged to the famous false Messiah Shabbetai Tsevi, and a copy of Maimonides law code Mishneh Torah with Sabbatean markings. Another highlight is a facsimile of the Alba Bible, one of the most elaborate illuminated biblical manuscripts ever produced. The exhibition will also feature contemporary works by Jewish and Israeli artists and bookmakers. A section devoted to Canadiana features one the earliest Canadian imprints, dating from 1752 as well as the first English translation of the Hebrew prayerbook (1770), among whose sponsors were the Canadian merchant Aaron Hart and his wife."--

The Xth Congress of the European Association for Jewish Studies (Paris, July 2014): 'Roman Policy in the Aftermath of the Great Jewish Revolt: A Reconsideration in Light of New Evidence.'

Gil Gambash

"Available evidence has thus far suggested that the actions of Vespasian and Titus with regard to the first Jewish revolt proceeded uninterrupted from conducting the campaign for the conquest of Judea to commemorating it appropriately, in grand manner. Such a run of events does not contradict any of the theories which have been suggested for the Flavian conduct after the conclusion of the war, be it imagined to have been guided by private dynastic requirements (Goodman 2007); by the needs of a state torn until recently by civil war (Yakobson forthcoming); or, finally, by routine protocol in the aftermath of great campaigns of conquest (Gambash 2013). A newly discovered Flavian aureus, however, carrying the unique legend Iudaea recepta on its reverse, has been interpreted recently as undermining this assumed flow of events, presenting us with a brief moment of different Flavian policy, when a line of commemoration completely opposed to the one eventually adopted was considered and even initiated (Gambash, Gitler, and Cotton 2013). The coin presents Judea as a former province which had temporarily been lost to the empire and was now reintegrated into the provincial system. This would have been in line with Rome’s normal practice, which, in the aftermath of provincial unrest, sought to return as quickly as possible to the antequam situation (Gambash 2012). The suggested paper aims to reevaluate the circ*mstances in late 70 in light of the new coin and the policy it denotes, examining such aspects as the official status of Judea; the rank of its governor and the nature of its administration; the garrisoning of the province; and retributive measures taken against the Jews in the province and elsewhere.

New Hebraica Fragments from the Genizat Tirolensia: Hebrew and Aramaic bookbinding-manuscripts in medieval Codices of Tyrol-Austria (Xth EAJS Congress 2014, Paris)

Dr. Ursula Schattner-Rieser

In contrast to the East of Austria, its western part and especially the Genizat Tirolensia ist still widely unexplored. Until recently the Tyrolean libraries had never been checked systematically on Hebrew and Aramaic fragments of medieval Hebrew books and documents recovered from book bindings and notarial files and the 18 fragments of the University library are chance finds. However a systematically recording is promising: in less than a year eight new fragments have been found and identified. The establishment of Jews in North- and South Tyrol is documented since the 13th century. Among the new finds are unique Talmud fragments, a Haftarah exemplary, Halakhah commentaries from Ashkenazic, Sephardic and Italian provenance shedding new light on the spiritual life of the Jews of medieval Tyrol. Further findings are to be expected and it is obvious that the history of the Jews of this border region has to be rewritten and completed. In this paper we want to present the new findings and the material for a new cross-border project within the European network "Books within books: Hebrew Fragments in European Libraries".
