It’s hard to ignore the role of wine during the Passover Seder. It’s also hard to ignore the haggadah at a Passover Seder. So what about wine in the Passover Haggadah? To discuss wine in Medieval Haggadah Art is Professor Marc Michael Epstein.
Professor Epstein is the Professor of Religion on the Mattie M. Paschall Davis and Norman H. Davis Chair and Director of Jewish Studies at Vassar College. He has written on various topics in visual and material culture produced by, for, and about Jews. His most recent book, Skies Of Parchment, Seas of Ink: Jewish Illuminated Manuscripts (Princeton, 2015) was the winner of the National Jewish Book Award. His The Medieval Haggadah: Art, Narrative, and Religious Imagination (Yale, 2011) was selected by the London Times Literary Supplement as one of the best books of 2011. He is a graduate of Oberlin College, received his PhD at Yale University, and did much of his graduate research at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
