Love, work, and death : Jewish life in medieval Umbria by Ariel Toaff( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Toaff always elaborates contemporary Jewish traditions and practices associated with love, marriage, food, work, sickness, and death in the context of everyday social relations between Christians and Jews. In so doing he reveals a full and fascinating reconstruction of the life of the period that takes into consideration the links and divides between the two communities. Love, Work, and Death: Jewish Life in Medieval Umbria will be of interest to all students of medieval Jewish history, as well as to specialists in the social history of medieval and Renaissance Italy
The Jews in Umbria by Ariel Toaff( Book )

in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents the texts of documents no. 887-1874, dealing with the life of the Jews in the region of Umbria between 1435-84. Gives an English abstract of the documents and, for important documents, also the original Latin or Old Italian text. The documents relate, among other subjects, to Christian-Jewish relations and anti-Jewish measures, such as imposition of a yellow badge, prohibition of sale of kosher meat and wine, taxation of Jews (e.g. vigesima), and punishment of mixed sexual relations. Many documents relate to regulation of moneylending, and to annulment of moneylending permits to Jews by city councils, whose members were threatened with excommunication, if they did not obey, by the Franciscan Order which was interested in setting up the institution of the Monte de Pieta
The Jews in medieval Assisi, 1305-1487 : a social and economic history of a small Jewish community in Italy by Ariel Toaff( Book )

10 editions published between 1959 and 1979 in English and Italian and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of Jewish-Christian relations in Assisi in the late medieval period. Inter alia, discusses anti-Jewish sermons by Franciscan friars in the 15th century, particularly by Fortunato Coppoli da Perugia. At his instigation, the Monte di Pieta was instituted in Assisi in 1468 in order to facilitate the passage of banking and finance from Jewish to Christian hands; other anti-Jewish measures were adopted as well. The Jews requested the intervention of Pope Paul II, who stated that all contracts with Jews were valid, but the Jews continued to be hounded by Franciscan preachers. In 1485 the Monte di Pieta and other measures were reinstituted, and shortly afterwards most of the Jews left the city. Pp. 101-213 contain documents, some of which refer to anti-Jewish measures
Pasque di sangue : ebrei d'Europa e omicidi rituali by Ariel Toaff( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in Italian and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accolto al suo primo apparire da vivaci discussioni e aspre polemiche, questo libro è qui riproposto in una nuova edizione che l'autore ha arricchito con un attento lavoro di chiarimento e approfondimento e con una stringente difesa dei metodi e dei risultati della propria ricerca. Oggetto dell'indagine è il mondo dell'ebraismo ashkenazita medievale, nel quale credenze popolari imbevute di superstizione e magia e di viscerali sentimenti anticristiani configurano una diffusa cultura del sangue contrastante con i precetti biblici e rabbinici. In questa cultura trova posto anche una ritualità religiosa stravolta, che porge suo malgrado argomenti alla calunnia dell'omicidio rituale, la terribile accusa del sangue origine di tante persecuzioni antiebraiche. E proprio nelle confessioni estorte nei processi per omicidio rituale (come quello famoso celebrato a Trento per la morte del piccolo Simonino) questa cultura viene in qualche modo alla luce. Scavando attorno allo stereotipo calunnioso dell'omicidio rituale Toaff fa così emergere una diversa immagine, per molti aspetti inedita, di quelle comunità e fornisce un contributo innovativo alla conoscenza dell'ebraismo europeo
