Title from Symposium home page (viewed Feb. 16, 2009).
Paper presented Feb. 22, 2008 during the Annual Sacred Leaves Graduate Symposium, held at the University of South Florida and organized by the Special Collections Dept. of the USF Tampa Library.
Several German Jewish holiday prayerbooks, dating between 1272 and the mid-14th century, contain various illuminations of a Jewish male-female couple. Sandman interprets these images, based upon Christian models, as being genuine Jewish expressions, rather than "antisemitic hate signs" as some have argued. These images occur in the context of illustrations of liturgy based upon Canticles, the biblical love/marriage song. Considering several puzzling features of the iconography which can be resolved by reference to the Zohar, Sandman considers whether the Zohar may have impacted German Jewry at an earlier date than previously presumed.
