Consider the concepts of messianism and mysticism as we have studied them over the past ten weeks. Define both messianism and mysticism, then consider examples from the Ancient through the Early Modern periods in Jewish history of the Middle East and North Africa. Select at least two examples of messianism and/or mysticism to compare and contrast, fully contextualizing each. What do these examples reveal about their specific times and places, and what might they reveal about Jewish history more broadly?
Historian Mark Cohen has written about two polar opposite narratives for describing Jewish history in the Middle East and North Africa, the “myth of interfaith utopia” and the “neo-lachrymose” (a term itself derived from Salo Baron’s 1928 famous discussion of the “lachrymose” narrative of medieval European Jewish history). Define each of these terms, including a discussion of what groups have historically subscribed to each of the two narratives and why. Then, select at least one example from Jewish history in the Middle East and North Africa that we’ve covered in class to argue against both narratives. How does your example demonstrate the folly of both the “myth of interfaith utopia” as well as the “neo-lachrymose” and why is it important to demonstrate this folly?
After the expulsion from Spain in 1492, Sephardi Jews took a number of divergent routes of exile, including to the extensive holdings of the Ottoman Empire, Morocco, the Americas, Portugal, Italy, and northern Europe. Choose three distinct migration paths to compare and contrast.
What happened to Jews in each trajectory, who were some notable figures or places of Sephardi flourishing in each?
How did early Modern Jewish life in each trajectory differ, and what does this comparison reveal about broader trends in the history of Jews in the Middle East and North Africa?
Consider Jewish history in Morocco, Yemen, and Iran from the ancient to the early modern periods of history. Based on the material available from the class, how would you describe changes over time among Jews in each?
What, if anything, did these communities have in common over time, and in what ways did they diverge?
How does this comparison influence your understanding of Jewish history of the region?
