Genizah Scribes at Work
Wednesday, April 25, 2018, 5:00 pm
Professor Olszowy-Schlanger will explore the social and economic status of the scribes represented in the Cairo Genizah and examine their different domains (books or legal documents), their education, and the methods of scribal practice. Olszowy-Schlanger is a Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies [SIMS]/Herbert D. Katz Center Distinguished Fellow in Jewish Manuscript Studies. The fellowship, funded in part by the David Ruderman Distinguished Scholar fund, pairs a prominent scholar in any field of Jewish studies with a manuscript in one of our collections.
