Samenvatting The Mediterranean port of Livorno was home to one of the most prominent and privileged Jewish enclaves of early modern Europe. Focusing on Livornese Jewry, this book offers an alternative perspective on Jewish acculturation during the eighteenth century, and reassesses common assumptions about the interactions of Jews with outside culture and the impact of state reforms on the corporate Jewish community.
Working from a vast array of previously untapped archival and literary sources, Francesca Bregoli combines cultural analysis with a study of institutional developments to investigate Jewish responses to Enlightenment thought and politics, as well as non-Jewish perceptions of Jews, through an exploration of Jewish-Christian cultural exchange, sites of sociability, and reformist policies. Mediterranean Enlightenment shows that Livornese Jewish scholars engaged with Enlightenment ideals and aspired to contribute to society at large without weakening the boundaries of traditional Jewish life.
By arguing that the privileged status of Livorno Jewry had conservative rather than liberalizing effects, it also challenges the notion that economic utility facilitates Jewish integration, nuancing received wisdom about processes of emancipation in Europe.

Recensie s In Mediterranean Enlightenment, Francesca Bregoli marshals an array of new archival sources to illuminate Jewish intellectual, political, and cultural life in eighteenth century Livorno. This impressive and significant work of scholarship challenges the conventional narrative of the role of the Haskalah movement, of port cities, and of the very definition of what modernity and tradition meant for Jews.
Its implications will resonate far beyond its particular subject. This book is a book that must be read. The book is without doubt an important contribution to the knowledge of Tuscan history and it also demonstrates the importance of studying Tuscany as a separate cultural and institutional reality.

Volume F rancesca B regoli. They called for the removal of oppressive restrictions and prescribed greater Jewish engagement with the surrounding culture. But Enlightenment ideals and reforms were not applied or taken up in the same ways for all western European Jews. This is a book about how one privileged Jewish community embraced, resisted, and adapted to the Enlightenment in an optimistic age of reform. By focusing on the Jews of Livorno in Tuscany, an Italian state known for its far-reaching reforms inspired by Enlightenment principles, I offer a new view on the engagement of Jews with outside culture and the interplay of the Jewish community with the reforming eighteenthcentury state.
I scrutinize dynamics of participation, practices of distinction, and aspirations of inclusion that complicate familiar narratives about processes of transformation affecting European Jewries toward the end of the early modern period. A profound interest in the strategies of acculturation and differentiation adopted by ethnic minorities led me to Livorno. An unknown error has occurred.
