Sketches of our Fathers: Medieval Jewish Art as 'Visual Torah Commentary'

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


Can an artist be a 'mefareish' (traditional Torah commentator)? While Rashi and Nachmanides were writing their respective Torah commentaries, some medieval Jews were drawing their own examples of Biblical interpretation. Uncover a colorful tradition of "visual Torah commentary" in illuminated Hebrew manuscripts, based on research at Oxford's Bodleian Library.
