Maharal and Italy: The Trans-National Perspective

Professor David Malkiel (Bar-Ilan University, Israel) shall discuss the relationship of Jehuda Levy ben Becalel, known as Maharal (?1525-1609) to Italy, especially his response to the treatise by the Italian Jewish polyhistor Azarji de´ Rossi. The lecture shall contribute to the perception of Maharal as a significant Jewish theologian of the sixteenth century, not only as the creator of the legendary Golem.
