Jewish Cultural Heritage: Italian Cemeteries

The idea of a summer school has its origin in the fact that Italy possesses roughly 70% of all the Jewish cultural heritage in the world. Through the collaboration of professors from various disciplines and several Italian and foreign universities (amongst these Bar-Ilan University and the University of Maryland) and under the direction of CISE (Interdepartmental Centre for Jewish Studies ‘Michele Luzzatti’), which guarantees an international and interdisciplinary approach to the subject, the summer school intends to tackle the topic of Jewish prayer and burial sites, in particular Tuscan ones, analysed based on their architectural, artistic, linguistic, and anthropological characteristics.

Aim

The acquisition of a general understanding of the history of the Jews in Italy, an understanding of the nature of Jewish burial spaces and their architecture, knowledge of the theological-anthropological-regulatory foundations of Jewish graveyards and the ritual relationship with death, knowledge of specific epigraphic, linguistic and literary aspects (obtained through teaching in the classroom and field trips).

Who can apply

Master's degree students, Master's degrees, doctoral students and researchers in Hebrew Language, History, Archeology and linguistics, as well as experts and scholars with previous knowledges and interests on the matter. The summer school is also open to people interested in the matter, without specific linguistic skills on Hebrew.
