Conférence en ligne : Medieval Jewish Thought and the Italian Renaissance, le 12 avril 2021 à 9h30

Speakers: Giovanna Cifoletti (Centre Alexandre-Koyré – EHESS), Michael Engel (Hamburg University), Francesca Gorgoni (University of Haifa), Yehuda Halper (Bar-Ilan University), Zev Harvey (Hebrew University), Jill Kraye (Warburg Institute), Yossef Schwartz (Tel Aviv University), Cedric Skalli Cohen (University of Haifa), Joanna Weinberg (University of Oxford).

Organised by Hanna Gentili and Charles Burnett (Warburg Institute).

The reception of the medieval Hebrew philosophical tradition is a central element in the development of Renaissance philosophy, and a key factor in the interreligious dialogue which characterized the fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Mediterranean context. This international conference will discuss themes, sources and languages which shaped the transmission of Jewish philosophy from the Iberian Peninsula and Provence to Italy. Intersecting Arabic, Hebrew and Latin sources, the reception of Jewish Medieval Philosophy in the early modern Italian tradition is an expanding area of research, and the conference aims to promote encounters and collaborations between senior scholars, early career researches and postgraduate students.
