Cedric Cohen Skalli, "From the Court of the Kings to the Court of the Prophets: A New Inquiry into Abravanel’s Historicization of the Bible”

Presented by the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies  

Dr. Cedric Cohen Skalli teaches early modern and modern Jewish Philosophy at the University of Haifa. His research focuses on the relationship of Jewish thinkers to two main philosophical shifts: the shift from Medieval philosophy to early modern thought (14th-17th century), and the shift from early modern to modern thought (18th-20th century). He published three books and 16 articles on diverse aspects of Jewish thought and literature in the Renaissance and several essays on the question of translation and Sprachdenken in early 20th century philosophy. He is also translator of many works of Freud, Benjamin, Scholem, Idel and Abravanel.
