1:30 pm

In this session, we will study Ramban’s record of his disputation with Pablo Christiani, a Jewish apostate Dominican friar, in the original Hebrew (English translation provided).  In addition to discussing the general themes and arguments in the disputation, we will also analyze it in the broader historical context of the missionizing efforts of the Dominican and Franciscan friars, known as mendicant orders, and their role in the increase of anti Jewish animus in Europe in the thirteenth century.
