Dreams of Subversion in Medieval Jewish Art and Literature

Dreams of Subversion in Medieval Jewish Art and Literature

Marc Michael Epstein
3.7/5 (8 ratings)
Europe's Jewish minority culture was subjected to a barrage of public images proclaiming the dominance of the Christian majority. This book is the first to explore the Jewish response to this assault in the development of a visual culture through which Jews could affirmatively construct their identity as a people. It demonstrates how medieval Jews gave voice to messages of protest and dreams of subversion by actively appropriating and transforming the quintessential symbols of the dominant culture.
