Gesher Galicia SIG
The Ossolineum Library has launched a virtual exhibition “The Golden Age of the Jagiellonian Dynasty” with many unique objects showing the Renaissance-period culture in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The exhibition is accessible in English via the link:
Among the books, manuscripts and objects of art displayed online, there are also artefacts relating to the Jewish people, like the 1569 Cracow edition of Shulchan Aruch, one of two existing copies in the world (section: “The Society and Economy,” category: “Nations and Faith”). The accompanying videopodcasts have English
subtitles. Of particular interest is the presentation by Professor Marcin Wodziński, who heads the Wroclaw University's Department of Jewish Studies.
We extend our congratulations to Dr. Agnieszka Franczyk-Cegla, co-creator of the exhibition and Gesher Galicia's archival advisor in the Ossolineum. For more information on the Ossolineum history and collections, please refer to the article by Dr. Franczyk-Cegla published in the Galitzianer, June 2020, pp. 4-8.
