Hispania Judaica

Published:   2009
Books:   11

A product of many years of work by leading scholars of The Dinur Center for Research in Jewish History at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem, this series of monographs founded by Prof. Haim Beinart and originally published by The Magnes Press, has been now been issued in electronic format by Varda Books. The monographs contain the archival material from Spain and Portugal designed to methodically cover all regions of the Sefarad. A representative number of communities, major events and various aspects in Judeo-Spanish history and biographies of personalities who played a major role in the life of Hispano-Jewish society are described anew and historically evaluated. The collected material aims to provide primary sources for historians.

"The reconstruction of the history of the Jews during the Middle Ages has come to emphasize increasingly the utilization of archival materials that permit a closer look at the economic and social realities of Jewish life... The Hispania Judaica series... has distinguished itself through the presentation of a series of close studies of medieval Spanish Jewish communities."

--Robert Chazan
New York University

The aim of the Series is the publication of monographs and documentary collections on the history of the Jews in the Iberian peninsula from the earliest times until the end of the Middle Ages.

". . . a rich mine of information for the researcher and all who are interested in Jewish life in medieval Spain."

--Ruth Rigbi
Israel Genealogical Society

Scholars from various countries take part in the preparation of books, in which archival material from Spain and Portugal is collected and evaluated under the editorial supervision of Hispania Judaica. It is designed to cover methodically all regions of Sepharad. A representative number of communities, major events and various aspects in Judeo-Spanish history and biographies of personalities who played a major role in the life of Hispano-Jewish society are described anew and historically evaluated. These monographs are to serve the future historians of Iberian Jewry.

"[Two Portuguese Exiles in Castile is] a brilliant investigation... Lipiner's contribution to the study of the history of Jews and "conversos" in Portugal and Brazil is inestimable.... innovative approach, elegance of literary style, and meticulous care in researching sources."

--Inazio Steinhardt
