"Elisheva Baumgarten and Judah Galinsky's volume ... is a welcome reminder of the Jews' long history in the French Hexagone. ... All the essays are well-researched, meticulously edited, and to the point. Indeed, this a rare example of an edited book with a coherent construction and in which the different essays are in real dialogue with one another. ... this is a volume of uncommon thematic coherence and all together a superb piece of scholarship." (Flora Cassen, The Medieval Review, 2016)
