Medieval Synagogues In The Mediterranean Region, Samuel D. Gruber Jan 2010

Medieval Synagogues In The Mediterranean Region, Samuel D. Gruber

Religion

Throughout the Middle Ages, the synagogue developed as the central identifying institution and physical building for Jews, replacing the still yearned for but increasingly distant Jerusalem Temple as the focus of Jewish identity. Equally important, the synagogue became the symbol par excellance of the Jews and their community for the Christian (or Muslim) majority populations in the countries where Jews were settled. For Christians, the synagogue was a Jewish church, but much more so, it came to symbolize in opposition all that the church represented.

Though relatively little known today, medieval synagogues were not symbolic abstractions to the men and ...

The Illumination Of An English Psalter: A Preliminary Assessment, Bruce Watson Oct 1977

The Illumination Of An English Psalter: A Preliminary Assessment, Bruce Watson

The Courier

Several years ago the George Arents Research Library, Syracuse University, acquired a small English illuminated psalter (Uncat. MS 1), dated ca. 1300. It formerly had been in the collection of the Virtue and Cahill Library of the Cathedral Chapter of the Diocese of Portsmouth. Thus far, to the best of my knowledge, the only publication of the work has been the necessarily brief description of it by Barbara Larkin and Kenneth Pennington in the exhibition catalogue Medieval Art in Upstate New York. Placement of the style of the illumination of this psalter in the development of English Gothic manuscript painting ...


Smith Ms 36: A Study In Fifteenth Century Manuscript Illumination, Gloria K. Fiero Apr 1976

First, the style of the historieur, the artist who painted the miniatures, can be detected in at least three additional Books of ...
