Promotional Information

In "Sefer Hasidim" and the Ashkenazic Book in Medieval Europe, Ivan G. Marcus proposes a new paradigm for understanding how Sefer Hasidim, or "Book of the Pietists," was composed and how it extended an earlier Byzantine rabbinic tradition of authorship into medieval European Jewish culture.

About the Author

Ivan G. Marcus is the Frederick P. Rose Professor of Jewish History at Yale University. He is author of several books, including Piety and Society: The Jewish Pietists of Medieval Germany.


Ivan G. Marcus lays out in a new way how Sefer Hasidim develops and functions as an Ashkenazic book. The summary, assessment, and synthesis of prior research he presents is enlightening and helpful. * Ephraim Kanarfogel, Yeshiva University *
