Description

Levin talks about the lives of Jews in Medieval and Renaissance England, with a focus on the case of Dr. Lopez, a converted Jew who was physician to Queen Elizabeth I. He was accused of attempting to poison her and was executed on rather dubious evidence. Levin also discusses the representation of Jews in Renaissance drama, focusing on Shakespeare’s character Shylock.
