Abstract:My focus on the relationship between representations of Jews and the people who made and used these representations fills a significant gap in existing scholarship. My definition of the visual community, as constructed by the complex and nuanced relationship between the choices of an artist, the experience of the viewer, and the structure of an image, draws on work by Stanley Fish and Gabrielle Spiegel that is complemented by recent studies of the Jew as a necessary construct by Gavin Langmuir and Jeremy Cohen. Situating visualized Jews within each community's unique visual culture provides the opportunity to merge traditional art historical methods with pioneering interdisciplinary work, in order to allow for a more complete reading of the Jew in medieval England.
