Our Database Collection
HebrewPal is a partner of the Jewish Book Culture in the Islamicate World project, which is an international collaborative project funded by DFG and AHRC. Its aim is to study Jewish books, their makers and their readers in the medieval eastern Mediterranean.
The HebrewPal and Jewish Book Culture projects have together produced a collection of three thematically related databases:
HebrewPal is a pioneering Hebrew script database. It follows an original palaeographical approach. The analysis of the script is carried out from the global view of the script sample, through the study of individual words and letters to the details of the components of every letter.Browse Database
Jewish Book Culture offers a comprehensive searchable corpus of sources for the history of the Hebrew book in the Islamicate world. It consists of three parts: descriptions of manuscripts, editions and translations of documents concerning books and quotations about books in literature.Browse Database
This is an alphabetic encyclopaedic glossary of Jewish Book Culture in the medieval Islamicate World.
