For the first time in English, here is a comprehensive visual introduction to the history of the Jewish people in the Middle Ages. The Atlas includes more than one hundred maps, with accompanying text, that give an in-depth review of Jewish history throughout the world from the 5th to the 17th centuries.
The Atlas covers milestone events of Jewish history during this period: the dispersion of the Jews in the fourth and fifth centuries up to teh Crusades; the Black Death; the explusion from Spain; the persecutions of 1648 in eastern Europe and the Sabbatean movement. The maps and text illustrate the sequence of persecution expulsion, migration, and destruction, on the one hand, and a spiritual, religious, and cultural flowering, on the other. For students, scholars, and the general reader, the Atlas of Medieval Jewish History.
