5.0 étoiles sur 5 Intelligent and Deep 24 mai 2011
Par Seth H. Rosenzweig - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I heard Professor Epstein lecture at the Skirball Center in Los Angeles, and he was terrific, so when I got home, I bought the book, sight unseen, and I have to say, it, too, is wonderful--not only beautifully illustrated but also fascinating on many levels, touching on themes of loss, freedom, the role of women in Judaism, and the role of art in the world. He even delves into the cross-pollination between the Jewish and Christian traditions in Medieval religious art. As I said, fascinating stuff, intelligent and deep.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Creative and Illuminating 18 mai 2011

Epstein writes a book with humor, thoughtfulness, and clarity. This book is truly stunning in it's format but also in content. Epstein asks difficult questions, poses creative answers and makes the reader think. This book has implications and ideas that relate to many of us. It's audience should include more than just Medievalists.

I loved reading this book and enjoy simply looking again and again at the facsimiles. It is both scholarly and fun to read. Epstein's interpretations of the manuscripts read like a good mystery book.

Par Buda Zsofia - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Marc Epstein's new book is outstanding in more than one sense. Its revolutionarily fresh approach to medieval Jewish visual culture is paired with an entertaining style and magnificent, high quality images, and all this at an affordable price.
The author examines the illustrations of four medieval Haggadot of the fourteenth century: the Birds' Head Haggadah, the Golden Haggadah, the Rylands and the "Brother" Haggadot. His innovative analysis oversteps the frames of traditional art history and takes the reader on an intellectual voyage through the realm of medieval Jewish-Christian dialogue. Marc Epstein points out how the Jewish authorship of these Haggadot used the visual medium to express theological and social ideas, and to respond to historical events. Reading the book, one discovers that book illumination and visual culture in general is able to open a new window and offer a fresh perspective on Jewish-Christian coexistence in the Middle Ages, and to shed light on certain aspects that are not palpable through written sources.
This book is much more than a monograph of four Haggadot. Just as his previous work, Dreams of Subversion in Medieval Jewish art and Literature (Pennsylvania: Pennsylvania State University Press, 1997), Marc Michael Epstein's recent book is the foundation of a new methodology for studying Jewish visual culture as a creative and responsive medium which is able, and was indeed used, to express genuine Jewish ideas, rather than as a merely imitative or second-rate field compared to Christian art. Thanks to its clear and literary style, the book speaks to a much wider audience than a small circle of experts on Jewish art. Great enjoyment for the mind and the eyes!
