In This Land reveals the changes that Jewish communities across the county of Provence underwent during the late-thirteenth and fourteenth centuries and the social and cultural tensions that shaped their identity. Exploring legal responsa and other genres of rabbinic literature produced during this period – many of them previously unpublished – the book reveals the ways in which engagement with legal culture played a central role in the formation of medieval communal identity, providing both a language and a forum for the airing of grievances and the demarcation of social legitimacy.
