Written culture, scholarship, business, and systems of arithmetic attest to the centuries-long relationships and mutual influences between all three monotheistic religions. The sculptures Synagoga and Ecclesia from the thirteenth century reveal an anti-Jewish visual language in churches, which we analyze together with the students.
We discuss religions’ visibility in urban spaces using historical and contemporary photos of synagogues, mosques, and churches.
