Charismatic Leadership in 18th Century Poland: from Israel Ba’al Shem Tov to Jacob Frank
Pre-lecture reception in the Wilkins Terrace Restaurant (Wilkins Building) / Lecture in the Chadwick lecture theatre (Chadwick Building) |
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
Ada Rapoport-Albert, UCL Institute of Jewish Studies
This lecture will examine the emergence of a new type of charismatic leadership in the Jewish community of Poland in the aftermath of the heretical messianic movement of Sabbatai Zevi. It focuses on the near-contemporary figures of, on the one hand, Israel Ba'al Shem Tov, who inspired the spiritual revival movement of Hasidism, and on the other hand, Jacob Frank - leader of an apostate sectarian community of post-Sabbatian messianic believers.
The pre-lecture reception starts at 6:00pm in the Terrace Restaurant (Wilkins Building), and will be followed by the lecture at 6.45pm in the Chadwick Lecture Theatre (Chadwick Building).
