Journée d’étude – La transmission patrimoniale juive dans les sources juives et chrétiennes. Discours, normes, pratiques (XIIe-XIXe siècle)

This is the second workshop in a series that will culminate in a collected volume entitled A Jewish Model of Devolution? The Inheritance in the Medieval and Modern Jewish Societies. After a rst workshop at the University of Paris-Est – Créteil-Val-de-Marne on February 13, 2017, we continue our re ection on inheritance and de- volution in Western Jewish societies, now fo- cusing on the relationship between norms and practices.

While much attention has been paid over the past two decades to the history of the Jewish family, patrimonial devolution has never been systematically studied. Because of the comple- xity and multiplicity of its dimensions (legal, socio-economic, cultural, religious, anthropo- logical), inheritance can be considered a key to our understanding of the phenomena of social reproduction and of the functioning of Jewish societies. The multiplicity of Jewish origins and identities has probably had a signi cant impact on the practices of patrimonial devolu- tion, which we propose to study from different angles and in different contexts over the long term.
