The Medici Archive Project (MAP) is pleased to announce a new scholarly initiative: the Eugene Grant Research Program on Jewish History and Culture in Early Modern Europe (JHP). Thanks to the generous lead support of MAP board member Eugene Grant, as well as the support of other board members and donors, this program has been established to raise awareness among academic audiences about the great potential of unpublished documentary material on Jewish culture that is found in the Medici Granducal Archive.
This archival collection contains circa four million letters from the sixteenth through eighteenth centuries covering nearly every aspect of political, diplomatic, economic, artistic, scientific, military and medical culture not only at the Tuscan Court, but also throughout Europe and the Mediterranean world. During the course of the next three years, this program will accomplish a number of scholarly initiatives: making unpublished historical documents on Jewish history available on MAP’s digital platform (known as “BIA”), organizing conferences and talks in Europe and the United States, and publishing original scholarly research.
The director of this program, Dr. Piergabriele Mancuso, will lead a team of postdoctoral fellows, junior scholars and interns and will be based at the Archivio di Stato in Florence.
