Being an ency­clo­pe­dia on book cul­tures rather than book con­tents, this work places tex­tu­al­i­ty and mate­ri­al­i­ty of the book in the cen­ter of its inves­ti­ga­tion. The sin­gu­lar­i­ty of the Jew­ish book can only be under­stood in full if it is stud­ied in its broad­er cul­tur­al and inter­cul­tur­al con­text.

This ency­clo­pe­dia does that by focus­ing on the pale­o­graph­ic fea­tures, intend­ed func­tion, cul­tur­al sig­nif­i­cance, read­er­ship, accep­tance, and design of par­tic­u­lar books and gen­res, as well as the pro­duc­er-con­sumer rela­tions involved in the mak­ing and cir­cu­lat­ing of books. It cov­ers more than 2000 years of Jew­ish book cul­tures from all cor­ners of the earth.

The Ency­clo­pe­dia of Jew­ish Book Cul­tures Online will appear before the print edi­tion and fea­tures full-text search­able, rich­ly illus­trat­ed arti­cles. The print edi­tion will be released after all online con­tent is com­plete and will include one intro­duc­to­ry vol­ume, deal­ing with the fun­da­men­tal research ques­tions in the wide field of Jew­ish Book His­to­ry, fol­lowed by three alpha­bet­i­cal­ly orga­nized vol­umes, offer­ing a clas­sic entry-by-entry ency­clo­pe­dia, with arti­cles of great­ly vary­ing length. The online work reflects this franework and presents the intro­duc­to­ry essays as a sep­a­rate, but strong­ly inter­twined, sec­tion.

Katrin Kog­man-Appel, Pro­fes­sorin am Insti­tut für Jüdis­che Stu­di­en der WWU Mün­ster, gehört zum Edi­to­r­i­al Board der Ency­clo­pe­dia.
