How did Jews study medicine and who were their patients? What were their career options? What did they think of the great medical debates of their time, and what kinds of tensions characterized their professional and personal lives? How did they respond to the great pandemic of 1347-1352 known as the Black Death?
On Thursday, Sept. 26, 2019, 1:15 to 2:45, Susan Einbinder, Professor of Hebrew and Judaic Studies, Department of Literatures, Cultures and Languages, UConn, will present "Jewish Physicians in Europe's Middle Ages" for UConn Extension's Center for Learning in Retirement (CLIR).
