HIST 3280 - Jewish History to 1492


Explores the emergence of the ancient Hebrews, the first monotheistic people. Compares and contrasts the Jewish encounter with the great civilizations of the pre-modern era, including the Roman Empire, the world of Islam, and Catholic Europe. As the Jewish people migrated to distant lands–to Persia, to North Africa, to Spain, and to Poland–their customs and values evolved to meet the needs of their new environments. Jewish life before modernity was characterized by its great diversity. Yet amidst this great diversity the Jews always possessed a sense of unity.
