Women, Medicine, and Magic in Early Modern East-Central Europe

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel

Practical Kabbalah books written by Ashkenazi Jews during the early modern era contain various “magical recipes” related to health and healing. Alongside the strange magical formulas, these Jewish mystical “recipe books” also included the use and manipulation of natural substances, thus deploying both the natural and the supernatural world synchronously to affect healing.

Join Dr. Andrea Gondos for an exploration of this topic where she will discuss male conceptualizations of the female body, women’s health, and medical issues pertaining to conception, pregnancy, and childbirth, which constituted prevalent concerns during this historical period.

This event will take place at 12 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. IST.
