This lecture will describe memorial techniques used by the Jews of Europe in the Middle Ages, developed especially in response to the Crusades, through several examples drawn from liturgical texts that have been handed down from the 12th or 13th century to our days.
A reception in the Anthropology Lounge on the 2nd floor will follow the lecture.
