Tuesday 19 October: Ilana Tahan

A private virtual tour of the Hebrew Manuscripts exhibition at the British Library – the Curator’s Walkthrough.

Ilana Tahan, Lead Curator Hebrew and Christian Orient Collections at The British Library, will take us on a virtual walking tour around the exhibition. The tour will be followed by a live Q and A session with Ilana.

Through rarely-seen treasures from as far back as the 10th century, this exhibition takes you from Europe and North Africa, through to the Middle East and China to explore the relationships between Jews and their neighbours in the communities that they lived in.

How much knowledge and culture was exchanged between these groups? Fascinating works displayed on music, science and philosophy by famous Jewish scholars suggest there was more than we might think.

Witness both the high points and the lows of these relationships. An Italian rabbi’s reply to Henry VIII, who sought advice on divorcing his first wife. A 13th-century Anglo-Jewish charter showing the passing of property between people of different faiths. And the signs of conflict as we encounter Christian censorship in Jewish texts.

Along the way, meet the sages versed in magic, Kabbalah and alchemy, and even learn a love potion or two, as we discover the power of the written word.
