Description

Ars Judaica is an annual publication of the Department of Jewish Art at Bar-Ilan University. It showcases the Jewish contribution to the visual arts and architecture from antiquity to the present from a variety of perspectives, including history, iconography, semiotics, psychology, sociology, and folklore. As such it is a valuable resource for art historians, collectors, curators, and all those interested in the visual arts.
Volumes of Ars Judaica are distributed by the Littman Library of Jewish Civilization throughout the world, except Israel. Orders and enquiries from Israeli customers should be directed to: Ars Judaica Department of Jewish Art Bar-Ilan University Ramat-Gan 52900 Telephone: 03 5318413 Fax: 03 6359241 Email: [ajudaica@mail.biu.ac.il]

'Ars Judaica develops new integrative methodologies of Jewish art historical studies, which essentially contribute to the effect of the whole collection. There is a strategy and interpretative balance between formal analysis, historical cultural investigations, and iconographical, iconological and symbolic interpretations.'
Igor Dukhan, East European Jewish Affairs
