Jewish cemeteries in the Holy Roman Empire @ Selma Stern Zentrum für Jüdische Studien Berlin-Brandenburg
May 17 @ 18:00 – 20:00

Presentation of the book Jüdische Friedhöfe im mittelalterlichen Reich by Susanne Härtel (De Gruyter: Berlin/Boston 2017).

Jewish cemeteries existed for centuries in the Holy Roman Empire. Unlike earlier research, this study shows that Jewish gravesites  were not the primary sites of conflict. Instead, they provide evidence of a multi-religious society where, for the most part, Jewish and Christian spheres of life existed in quite natural proximity and in relation to one another.
