New Jerusalem: Florence, the Medici and the Jews during the Renaissance
8 July 2020 - 18:00
Virtual Cultural Event, on Zoom
by Lisa Kaborycha
Throughout the Renaissance, the wealthy and powerful Medici family maintained a special relationship with the Jewish community. This lecture looks at the impact of Renaissance cultural developments on the lives of Florentine Jews.
Lisa Kaborycha was a Eugene Grant Fellow in Jewish History and Culture at the Medici Archive Project from 2014-2016.
The talk will last about 40 mins, and will be followed by a discussion using the power of video conferencing.
