(). ‘My precious books and instruments’: Jewish divorce strategies and self-fashioning in medieval Catalonia. Journal of Medieval History: Vol. 43, No. 5, pp. The Sinagoga Major de Barcelona (Carrer Marlet 2, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. , COST: EUR2, OPEN: Tues.-Sat. , Sun. ), the restored original synagogue at the corner of Marlet and Sant Domènec del Call, is the principal remaining evidence of the Jewish presence in Catalonia. Tours are given in English, Hebrew, and.

Some of Catalonia’s significant Jewish landmarks, which have been discovered in recent decades, include the ruins of Barcelona’s ancient synagogue, (which claims to be the oldest in Europe), and Spain’s only fully-preserved medieval mikvah, located in the charming village of Besalu (one and a half hours north of Barcelona by car). Based on the five books of Moses and written in Hebrew Aramaic, the text of the Zohar explores and expounds in a most cryptic way the mystical tradition. Its pre-eminent place in Jewish mysticism does not derive solely from its antiquity or its authorship. Other works of the Kabbalah such as Sefer Yetzirah and Sefer HaBahir are of earlier.

Entry for 'Catalonia' - The Jewish Encyclopedia - One of 8 Bible encyclopedias freely available, this encyclopedia is a descriptive record of the history, religion and customs of the Jewish people. Judaism - Judaism - Sefer yetzira: In the ancient esoteric literature of Judaism, a special place must be given to the Sefer yetzira (“Book of Creation”), which deals with cosmogony and cosmology. Creation, it affirms with a clearly anti-gnostic insistence, is the work of the God of Israel and took place on the ideal, immaterial level and on the concrete level.

Henceforth the history of the Jews in Catalonia is that of their brethren in Aragon (see Aragon, Barcelona, Gerona, Manresa, Spain).

The connection between Catalonia and southern France is also shown from a religious standpoint, as later the question was discussed whether Gershom's arrangement forbidding polygamy for Germany and France was.

Being Jewish I was interested in exploring the history of the Jews in Spain and was looking for a tour guide who could do just that.
