Ancient Judaism Conference
"A Conference in Honor of Peter Schafer"
SUNDAY MAY 19, 2013
Peter Schafer came to Princeton in 1998 to serve as the first Ronald O. Perelman Professor of Jewish Studies in the Department of Religion and Program in Judaic Studies. He has served as director of the Program since 2005. His work has reshaped the study of early Jewish mysticism, and his scholarship has played a central role in the study of rabbinic literature. He has had profound impact on Jewish Studies in Germany and the United States not only through his scholarship but also through the many conferences he has organized and the publications he has supervised.
