This is the first comprehensive account, based on manuscript and archaeological evidence, of the high Hebraic culture developed by the Jews in Normandy during the Middle Ages, and in particular during the Anglo-Norman period. The book explores the origins of this remarkable community, beginning with topographical evidence pointing to the arrival of the Jews in Normandy as early as Roman and Gallo-Roman times, and finally uses the rich manuscript evidence of twelfth- and early thirteenth-century writers. The text is illustrated copiously with maps and other illustrations, many reproduced here for the first time.
