Abstract

In 2021, MIQUA. LVR-Jewish Museum in the Archaeological Quarter Cologne will open its gates. In its exhibitions, among other findings from this site, archaeological features and finds of the medieval Jewish Quarter will be presented and contextualized. In the talks, we will especially focus on the finds of the Pogrom 1349, the inscribed slates and the transformation of the medieval synagogue to a Christian chapel in 1426. The material evidence of the Jewish Quarter in medieval Cologne is exceptionally rich. The talks will emphasize the features and finds themselves as well as their presentation in the future museum.
