About this item

Censorship, printing, and language policy played a significant role in the creation of cohesive political entities and societies during the 17th century, says Kerner. He takes the Spanish and Portuguese Jews' congregations of London as a case study to examine the phenomena and the validity of previously offered theoretical frameworks. He analyzes the London Sephardic community as a linguistic community in addition to being an ethnic and religious one, and the efforts of the leadership to control the congregation through the exercise of tough censorship on the printed matter the members authored.
