Corpus Christi College invites all university alumni to join them in Toronto on Wednesday, 22 March 2023 for a fascinating talk by Professor Judith Olszowy-Schlanger, Professor in Hebrew and Jewish Studies at Corpus Christi and President of the Oxford Centre for Jewish Studies.

Corpus Christi’s impressive library collection includes works by Aristotle and Galileo, and their holdings of Hebraica and Judaica are outstanding in rarity and cultural value. The college is the custodian of one of the most significant collections of Anglo-Jewish manuscripts in the world, as well as a collection of early printed books relevant to Jewish history. The Hebraica illustrate the history of the Jews in England before their expulsion in 1290, demonstrating the important role the Jewish community played in the intellectual and economic life of England in the thirteenth century.

We hope you will join to learn more about these fascinating manuscript treasures on Wednesday, 22 March 2023.

The event will be held at The Lillian Massey Building, University of Toronto. If you would like to attend the talk, please email Martha Baskerville at development@ccc.ox.ac.uk to register.
