Although Ludovico Ariosto never mentions contemporary Jewish intellectuals in his writings, Jews do appear in his works. The article deals with the various depictions of Jewish characters in the poet's production. They are always portrayed as an important component of the society of Ferrara, where they were known as scholars, merchants, bankers, physicians, and astrologers. Ariosto probably saw them as neighbours, not as strangers or infidels.

Abstract

Although Ludovico Ariosto never mentions contemporary Jewish intellectuals in his writings, Jews do appear in his works. The article deals with the various depictions of Jewish characters in the poet's production. They are always portrayed as an important component of the society of Ferrara, where they were known as scholars, merchants, bankers, physicians, and astrologers. Ariosto probably saw them as neighbours, not as strangers or infidels.
