“Did women have a Renaissance?” and “Were Jews actors or merely spectators of the cultural renewal of the Renaissance?” We will attempt to answer these questions by focusing on Jewish women in the Renaissance, a period when both women and Jews were ostensibly marginal figures. We will encounter extraordinary women such as a Jewish philosopher who hosted an academy in her home in Venice, and Jewish women with exceptional economic and political power. We will analyze their legal status and education in comparison to Christian women of that period by reading primary sources that shed light on issues of marriage and divorce, as well as on the pressure to convert to Catholicism.
