The 2000s have seen numerous comics conquer the devout Haredi book market in the usa as well as in Israel, sparking a boom which still remains largely unnoticed. The work of Gadi Pollack stands out due to its graphic quality and richness in technique and ideas. “His comics can be classified as a modern form of Musar literature, which is not only for ‘children’.” His comics will thus serve as a case study for the medium; a medium that is also the subject of Judaistic cultural studies and examined here for the very first time.

Abstract

The lecture deals with life and works of the theologian and philologist Christoph Helwig (Helvicus), who was professor for Hebrew language at the University of Gießen, Germany. His scientific career is strongly connected both with the political and religious conflicts in Hessen in the beginning of the sixteenth century and with the Didactic reformer Wolfgang Ratke (Ratichus). The focus is directed upon the work “Jüdische Historien” (Jewish stories) which appeared in 1611 and 1612 and was absorbed by the fairy tale and legends researchers Brothers Grimm.
