Hebrew Illuminated Manuscripts: Transcultural Interpretation and Transmission
Los Angeles, CA 90095 United States + Google Map
This conference (online and onsite) brings together scholars to consider different manuscript communities in Europe, their textual and iconographic traditions, and more globally, an exploration of communities that produced “families” of Hebrew manuscripts and enabled transmissions across languages and societies.
Motivation to organize this conference stems from The J. Paul Getty Museum’s recent acquisition of the Rothschild Pentateuch. This manuscript serves as a case study on how a single object crosses geographical and religious boundaries and provides the impetus for wider discussion on Hebrew manuscript culture as a touchstone of interaction and contact.
