Hebrew Bible and Medieval Commentaries

August 25 – September 4

We will dedicate the lessons to discuss interesting and essential aspects in the work of some of the most important medieval Jewish exegetes. We will analyze their exegetical motivation and methodology; discuss their attitude and contribution in fundamental questions and their role in the history of biblical exegesis.
