On October 18th from 3-5 pm, the David Rumsey Map Center will host a talk by Professor Marcin Wodziński. Wodziński is a professor of Jewish studies at the University of Wrocław in Poland. His many books include Hasidism: A New History (Princeton) and Hasidism and Politics: The Kingdom of Poland, 1815–1864.
Historical Atlas of Hasidism is visually stunning and easy to use, a magnificent resource for anyone seeking to understand Hasidism's spatial and spiritual dimensions, or indeed anybody interested in geographies of religious movements past and present.
Doors Open: 2.30 pm
Talk: 3.00 pm - 4.00 pm
Center Closes: 4.30 pm
