Germania Judaica IV provides information on all aspects of the Jewish minority's life. The authors study the history of the settlements, the economic and social situation and the legal and political position of the Jewish population along with the inner-Jewish organization and its administration, religion and culture as well as everyday relationships between Jews and Christians.
The Germania Judaica has long become an indispensable standard work in German-Jewish history. After completion of sequences I-III, which dealt with the Middle Ages, Germania Judaica IV now turns to the period of time between 1520 and 1650. Commensurate with the altered conditions of Jewish existence in the early modern period, the previous account which was given in articles on places is now continued in studies of regions. Based on a comprehensive review of the sources, Germania Judaica IV provides information on all aspects of the Jewish minority's life. The authors study the history of the settlements, the economic and social situation and the legal and political position of the Jewish population along with the inner-Jewish organization and its administration, religion and culture as well as everyday relationships between Jews and Christians.
