OVERVIEW

Presentation

Hebrew is a fundamental discipline for future historians, as it provides direct access to the Bible, the most studied book in history. Moreover, the history of Italy in Middle Ages and in Modern Age is very closely related to the history of the Jewish communities, which played a key role in the economic and political development of cities like Genoa. No particular preliminary knowledge is required.
