Ketubbah : Jewish marriage contracts of the Hebrew Union College Skirball Museum and Klau Library by Hebrew Union College Skirball Museum( Book )

6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The illustrated Ketubbah is a unique artifact of Judaica. It is, first of all, a legal document virtually unchanged since talmudic times, but it is also an artistic expression of aesthetic tastes and social mores from centuries of Jewish wandering and just as much a part of today's Jewish wedding ceremonies as it was hundreds of years ago. This gorgeous collection of kettubim includes 48 color plates and 124 black and white photographs."--Publisher description
Ketubbah : the art of the Jewish marriage contract by Shalom Sabar( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The custom of illuminating the traditional Jewish marriage contract, the ketubbah, developed over the last four centuries into a rich and varied form of Jewish folk art. This book offers a broad selection from one of the outstanding collections of ketubbot, representing Jewish communities from the Near East to Northern Europe. It focuses particularly on the ketubbot of Italy, where the art of the illuminated ketubbah found its most beautiful expression during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, under the influence of Renaissance and Baroque art." "Co-produced with the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, home to one of the largest collections of ketubbot, this book also offers a fascinating account of Jewish marriage customs and a vivid picture of diverse Jewish communities." --Book Jacket

The beginnings and flourishing of Ketubbah illustration in Italy : a study in popular imagery and Jewish patronage during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries by Shalom Sabar( )

12 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following an introductory chapter which surveys the historical development of the ketubbah and its decoration in Jewish societies around the world, the second chapter investigates the beginnings of this phenomenon in Italy. It answers questions such as who were the first patrons to commission decorated ketubbot, and where, when, and why they started to do so. The third and fourth chapters are dedicated to the height of the Italian ketubbah illustration. The visual sources, meaning and reasons for popularity of the three most recurrent motifs, viz., the portal imagery, the zodiac cycle, and the allegorical personifications, are analyzed in the third; while the various ways in which symbols of ownership and personal allusions were incorporated into the decorative programs constitute the subject of the fourth. In the concluding chapter, the overall meaning of the illustrated ketubbah and the place which it occupied in the life of contemporary Jews are examined vis-a-vis the reactions of the rabbinical and communal authorities and parallel phenomena in the Catholic society. Underlying this discussion is the conclusion that the richly illustrated contracts served to epitomize the hidden aspirations of the wealthy Jewish families, wishing to imitate the manners and artistic tastes of their Christian noble neighbors while still maintaining the Jewish identity
