Bovo-Buch: Chivalric Romance, Cultural Collision

A three episode podcast series produced by theatre dybbuk, presented in collaboration with Judaism Unbound

 

Bovo-Buch is Elia Levita's 16th century Yiddish adaptation of the popular Italian chivalric romance Bovo d’Antona. The book was extremely popular among Jewish communities of the time, and is an example of the cultural convergence that occurs when a narrative is adapted into a new context. Our three episode podcast is a combination of scholarship around the book and its history – led by Erith Jaffe-Berg in conversation with Aaron Henne – and performed readings of the text by actors from theatre dybbuk.

The podcast will be released on Judaism Unbound beginning with an introductory interview featuring Aaron and Erith on September 20. The three episodes – "Story and Society," "The Women and Their World," and "Popularity and Prejudice" – will follow in sequence September 21 – 23.

We will be adding links to the episodes below as they go live:
