The contrast between scientific, scholarly knowledge and popular lore and culture affected all areas of Jewish medieval society, including the ways time and calendars were reckoned. This sixth workshop of the ERC project, ‘Calendars in Antiquity and the Middle Ages’, explores the conflict, tension, and complementarity between science and popular culture in a variety of fields and disciplines, ranging from law and custom to mathematics, medicine, alchemy and magic.
