The topic of his lecture is Jewish communities in Byzantium. The speaker will provide the audience with a broad sketch of Byzantine Jewry not in only in the Empire’s large cities but also in minor ones, covering a large period (from the Middle Byzantine period to later times), covering its relations with authorities, its place in local societies, collective perceptions of it and most important sources.
