about

In This Land reveals the changes that Jewish communities across the county of Provence underwent during the late-thirteenth and fourteenth centuries and the social and cultural tensions that shaped their identity. Exploring legal responsa and other genres of rabbinic literature produced during this period - many of them previously unpublished - the book reveals the ways in which engagement with legal culture played a central role in the formation of medieval communal identity, providing both a language and a forum for the airing of grievances and the demarcation of social legitimacy.
Pinchas Roth teaches in the Department of Talmud and Oral Law in the Faculty of Jewish Studies at Bar-Ilan University in Israel. A specialist in the history of Halakhah (Jewish law) in the medieval West, he is currently preparing a corpus of medieval rabbinic responsa from England.
