HILLDALE LECTURE IN THE ARTS & HUMANITIES, 2019-2020

Prof. William Chester Jordan, Dayton-Stockton Professor of History at Princeton University

“The First Crusade and Jewish Martyrdom”

Thursday, October 3, 2019
6 p.m.
Conrad A. Elvehjem Building, L140

The lecture sketches out the background to the call for the First Crusade, narrates a few of the major events as context for the main story of the lecture, and then concentrates on what has been and can be learned from the Hebrew and Latin sources for the Jews’ responses. It concludes by raising the question of the appropriateness of the language of trauma to categorize the European phase of the crusade and its impact on the continent’s Jews.
