Judaica Bohemiae


A new issue of the journal Judaica Bohemiae (46/2011, 1) came out at the beginning of July 2011. Published since 1965 by the Jewish Museum in Prague, Judaica Bohemiae focuses on Jewish history and culture in Bohemia, Moravia and the wider Central European area (the territory of the former Habsburg Monarchy). The texts are in English and German.

In the main studies section, Orit Ramon deals with the influence of the historical area of the Bohemian Lands in the latter half of the 16th century on the Maharal's ideas and work. In the third part of his study on Prague Jews and Judah Hasid, Alexandr Putík describes the Prague Jewish community's internal political history in the first two decades of the 18th century and the influence that Messianism had on it. The next study is by Ines Koeltzsch who explores anti-Jewish violence and anti-Semitism in Prague during the First Republic. In the reports section, Dana Veselská assesses the informative value of data on collection points in the Jewish Museum in Prague's German Catalogue and Arno Pařík discusses the exhibition Baroque Synagogues in the Czech Lands. Conference reports include: the 31st Mikulov Symposium, which focused on the topic of ethnic minorities in Moravia (report by Martin Štindl), an Olomouc conference on Ludwig August Frankl (report by Magdaléna Stárková) and the 17th Jews and Moravia Conference (report by Petr Pálka). At the end of the journal is Iveta Cermanová's review of Michael L. Miller's book, Rabbis and Revolution. The Jews of Moravia in the Age of Emancipation (2011).
