The New Gallia Judaica

The history of Jews and Judaism constitutes an essential part of the history of Western civilization. Both Christianity and Islam have have emerged in dialogue with the Jewish tradition which preceded them and which they claimed as they inheritance — debates which had a lasting impact on the living conditions of Jews established in the Islamic and Christian worlds.

A Cross-Cultural Perspective

As a comparative research centre, LEM devotes much attention to Jewish culture and society in the ancient and medieval worlds. It explores the place of Judaism in the religious history of the West, and the role of the Jewish tradition in the emergence of critical scholarship on religion. The history of Jews and Judaism is studied in a cross-cultural perspective, mindful of the interactions, conflicts and exchanges that have contributed to the development and reception of the foundational sources of ancient and medieval Judaism.

The topics studied include : :
- Judaism in relation to the Greco-Roman culture of the ancient world
-  The emergence of rabbinic Judaism
-  Jewish culture and society in the Sassanian Empire
-  Biblical hermeneutics and Jewish exegesis in Anti-quity and the Middle Ages
-  Jewish magic : documents, practices and dis-courses
-  The history of anti-Judaism and anti-Semitism
-  Jews and Christians : controversy, exchange and polemics
-  Judeo-Arabic philosophy and mysticism
-  Jewish cultures in the Islamic world
-  The history and prosopography of the Jews of France
