Welcome to Medieval Ashkenaz!
We're currently working on a translation of the website into English. Until then you can read more about the project or search our database of sources. Of course all pages are accesible in the German version.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
About the Project
The long-term aim of the project "Corpus der Quellen zur Geschichte der Juden im spätmittelalterlichen Reich" ("Corpus of sources concerning the history of the Jews in the Roman-German Empire during the Middle Ages") is to record for the first time all relevant sources on the history of the Jews in the Roman-German Empire between 1273 and 1519, focusing on those sources which can be categorized chronologically and spatially.
