The publication shows Jewish communities of Central European towns from many points of view. It highlights about their settlements, their relationship with the ruler, their new settlements in towns, where they were evicted from, and their financial activities; it also touches on their culture, rabbinic literature, everyday life, language, burial, and relations with the Christian majority. Individual chapters present the results of original research of preserved literary and material sources.
In English and German.
