11 May - Jews in Medieval English Culture

altMJM is delighted to be staging this year's Community Sherman Lecture, by Professor Miri Rubin, entitled 'Jews in Medieval English Culture'.

Jews were embedded in the ideas and practices of every community of which they formed a part. Yet the experience of living as a Jew or with Jews varied greatly between European regions over time.

Professor Miri Rubin will consider the circumstances surrounding the settlement of Jews and the interactions and attitudes that developed towards them. It will point out, in particular, the diverse attitudes and interactions experienced in different milieus: monastic, urban, scholastic, courtly, as well as in Latin, English and French.

Professor Miri Rubin is professor of Medieval and Early Modern History at Queen Mary University of London.
