Although Jews lacked a political locus standi for a communication system in the Middle Ages and Early Modern periods, their involvement in trade and the close relations among Jewish communities fostered the development of effective channels of communication. This process responded primarily to security and socio-economic considerations but it has important implications for the development of communication systems as well. Written by some of the most outstanding researchers in the field of Jewish history, this collection offers a rich and consistent picture of the main developments in communications in the Jewish world before the era of mass-media. This pioneering research reconsiders the principal means of communication among the Jewish communities in the Islamic world, Christian Europe, the Ottoman Empire, and the New World, from the seventh until the nineteenth centuries.Table of ContentsIntroduction: The "Pre-History" of Communication Communication in the Jewish Diaspora: A Survey By Land or By Sea: The Passage of the Kalonymides to the Rhineland in the Tenth Century Geniza Letters: Maritime Difficulties Along the Alexandria-Palermo Route The Use of Letters as a Communication Medium Among Medieval European Jewish Communities Communication Among Jewish Centers During the Tenth to the Twelfth Centuries "Companies of Disciples" and "Companies of Colleagues": Communication in Jewish Intellectual Circles Between East and West: The Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem and Its Jewish Communities as a Communication Center (1099-1291) Communication and Propaganda Between Provence and Spain: The Controversy Over Extreme Allegorization (1303-1306) Communication or the Lack Thereof Among Thirteenth-Fourteenth Century Provencal Jewish Philosophers: Moses Ibn Tibbon and Gersonides on Song of Songs Hebrew Letters, Hispanic Mail: Communication Among Fourteenth-Century Aragon Jewry A Judeo-Italian Version of Selected Passages from Cecco d'Ascoli's Acerba The Spread of the Sabbatean Movement in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries Tradition du discours et discours de la tradition dans les communautes juives du Maroc: Etude socio-pragmatique Traditional and Modern Communication: The Jewish Context
