A Vassar College Fishman Family Endowed lecture by David Shyovitz, Associate Professor of History at Northwestern University and Director of NU’s Crown Family Center for Jewish and Israel Studies.
In the high Middle Ages, European Jews wrote voluminously about which biblical figures had secretly been werewolves, which species of fish scrupulously observed the Sabbath, and whether animals would be resurrected from the dead and rewarded in heaven for their good deeds.
