HebrewPal icon
HebrewPal combines traditional Hebrew palaeography with new developments in digital technology. Based on a palaeographical method originally devised and taught by Judith Olszowy-Schlanger, the Hebrew Palaeography Album in its present digital format has been developed by an international research team in three institutions: Oxford University, Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich, and a research cluster SAPRAT (Savoirs et pratiques du moyen âge à l'époque contemporaine) of the École Pratique des Hautes Etudes, PSL. Paris, led by Ronny Vollandt and Judith Olszowy-Schlanger. Originally a part of a DFG/AHRC project 'Jewish Book Culture in the Islamicate World', the Album has been expanded to include Hebrew books, documents, and epigraphy from all areas of Jewish diaspora. Launched in 2022, HebrewPal is designed to be broadened to include further research partners and institutions.
