Reviews

"A new window into the richness of Renaissance culture, which cannot be understood without the Jews."--American Historical Review


"Cultural Intermediaries is highly original, featuring contributions from the leading internationally renowned scholars in the field. It raises the discourse on the intellectual history of Jews in Italy during the sixteenth century to a new and higher level. A cutting-edge analysis."--Benjamin Ravid, Brandeis University
