Sephardim : the Jews from Spain by Paloma Díaz Más( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first comprehensive history in English of the Sephardim--descendants of the Jews expelled from Spain in 1492 by Ferdinand and Isabella. Writing for the general reader as well as for the specialist, Paloma Díaz-Mas provides an organized and up-to-date account of the Sephardic culture, history, religious practice, language, and literature. Most of the Sephardim originally settled in Mediterranean Europe, the Low Countries, North Africa, and the Turkish Empire. In the nineteenth century, however, a second diaspora brought the Sephardim to the United States, South America, Israel, and Western Europe. Díaz-Mas begins with a brief overview of Jewish religion and culture, discussing the calendar, holidays, dietary laws, and life-cycle ceremonies. Next, she traces the history of the Jews in Spain through the 1492 expulsion. She describes their subsequent wanderings, settlements, and achievements up to the nineteenth century, when false messiahs caused crises that had a profound impact on Sephardic communities. After detailing the various causes of the second diaspora, Díaz-Mas addresses the effect of the Holocaust specifically on the Sephardim--an issue almost entirely overlooked elsewhere. She also reviews the involvement of the Sephardim in Spanish politics through the Moroccan Protectorate and into Franco's time and the present. The final chapter focuses on the situation of the Sephardim throughout the world today. Díaz-Mas's treatment of the language of the Sephardim--often called Ladino or Judeo-Spanish--shows how it diverged from "mainstream" Spanish in the 1500s, how it developed regional dialects, and why it is now disappearing as an everyday language. In addition to traditional Sephardic literature--religious works, coplas (verses), popular stories--new genres like journalism and theater are also examined

El sueño de Venecia by Paloma Díaz Más( Book )

37 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in Spanish and Greek, Modern and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hacia 1665, un esclavo liberto pintó el retrato de doña Gracia de Mendoza, célebre cortesana de la época, y de un niño a quien recogió, convertido luego en su amante y finalmente en su esposo, Pablo de la Corredera. Desde entonces, el cuadro ha cambiado varias veces de dueño, ha padecido mutilaciones y añadidos y, sobre todo, ha sido visto con distintos ojos por hombres y mujeres de distintas épocas. Y en la nuestra alguien lo descubrió, lo restauró y reconstruyó -o creyo reconstruir- la verdadera historia del cuadro y de los personajes que aparecen en él

Los sefardíes ante los retos del mundo contemporáneo : identidad y mentalidades by Paloma Díaz Más( )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in Spanish and English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En este libro se analizan, desde una perspectiva multidisciplinar, varios aspectos de la cultura de los judíos sefardíes del Mediterráneo Oriental en el paso del siglo XIX al XX. La situación de los sefardíes del antiguo imperio otomano, las transformaciones que sufrieron su cultura y sus formas de vida tradicionales como consecuencia de los cambios políticos, económicos y socioculturales en Turquía y los Balcanes entre la segunda mitad del siglo XIX y la Segunda Guerra Mundial, poseen características especificas, pero también elementos en común con lo sucedido a otras minorías europeas. El caso sefardí constituye, por tanto, un ejemplo que nos permite entender mejor cuestiones históricas que tienen un reflejo directo en la actualidad: las relaciones entre los estados europeos occidentales y el Oriente Mediterráneo, el proceso de occidentalización y modernización de Turquía y los países balcánicos, el impacto en ese contexto de los nuevos sistemas educativos sobre los grupos minoritarios, las subsiguientes tensiones entre religiosidad y laicismo, el cambio del papel de las mujeres, la emigración y el transnacionalismo, la aculturaclón de las minorías o la muerte de las lenguas minoritarias."--Back cover

Proverbios morales by Santob( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in Spanish and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Hebrew poet, known by his Catilian name, Santob de Carrión, lived in the first half of the fourteenth century. Proverbios Morales is interesting as a deliberate attempt to express Jewish though and wisdom in a Romance tongue, not by way of translation but by means of an adopted poetical technique. In this text, originally published in 1947, Professor Llubera offers a critical edition, giving the text of the work and a full and detailed introduction to it, discussing the author, the work, the MSS., the language, the metre, and variants, with a concordance

Lo que olvidamos by Paloma Díaz Más( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Con mirada atenta y sutil, con una emotividad desprovista de afectaciones, Paloma Díaz-Mas indaga en el cruce entre dos relatos, dos pasados (el familiar y el colectivo, el político y el personal), que persigue encarnados en objetos, historias, recuerdos. Ante la doliente constatación de la caducidad de la memoria, Lo que olvidamos -honesta y veraz, intimista, absorbente- exhibe su voluntad de restaurarla, de reevaluarla y restituirla, y lo hace con talento, energía y solidez, confirmando las entusiastas valoraciones de que ha sido objeto la trayectoria de Paloma Díaz-Mas hasta ahora: «Díaz-Mas es una escritora extraordinaria, leerla siempre es un placer» (Adolfo García Ortega, El Norte de Castilla); «En Paloma Díaz-Mas sería impensable un libro sin riqueza conceptual y elegancia estilística; es decir, pensado para todos los que aman la literatura» (Leer); «Abre nuevos terrenos en cada obra» (William R. Risley, World Literature Today); «Verdadero dominio del arte de contar» (Iñaki Ezquerra, El Correo Español)."--Back cover
