Description This lecture will discuss the eruption of one of the most important messianic movements in Jewish history, the Frankist movement, which began in Poland in the 1750's and within several years spread into large parts of East-Central Europe. In discussing the personality and fortunes of the movement leader, Jacob Frank, Professor Maciejko will examine the unprecedented alliance of the Catholic clergy and the Jewish rabbinate that contributed to the creation of Frankism. Pawel Maciejko is a senior lecturer in Jewish Thought at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem where he studies the history of Jewish heterodoxy and heresy in general, and the history of the Sabbatian movement in particular.
