Chronoi Talks "Mediterranean Time and Timing in the Maimonidean Dynasty"
October 28, 2019
11am - 1pm
Prof. Dr. Menachem Ben Sasson (Chancellor of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem/Department of the History of the Jewish People)
The time of the Maimonidean dynasty, 12th-15th centuries, were days of crisis for Jewish communities reflecting political instability, a series of economic disasters and minorities persecutions. This talk will deal with ‘Time and Timing’ in the dynasty’s legacy and deeds. ‘Time’ plays a central role in the attitude of members of the Maimonidean dynasty in two main parallel tracks - a systematic-theoretical reference to the concepts of time and practical reference to ‘Time’.
