Problems in Near Eastern Jewish History: Jewish and Islamic LawCourse Cancelled

Eve Krakowski

Back to "Spring 2023" courses

An introduction to medieval Near Eastern legal cultures that focuses on the intertwined development of Jewish and Islamic law from late antiquity until the twelfth century. We consider both legal writings such as codes and responsa and evidence for practices in state and communal courts. Geared both to students interested in legal history and to students interested in using legal texts and documents for general historical research.
