Welcome to Haskala.net

Are you interested in the Haskalah, the Jewish Enlightenment?


Haskala.net is an open, scholarly forum on the Haskalah, the Jewish enlightenment thinkers of the 18th and 19th centuries and their works. The website haskala.net was developed and is maintained by a research group at the University of Potsdam.

The goal of the website is to present a virtual archive on the Haskalah, its protagonists, their life and works, as well as the movement’s institutions and activities. Haskala.net is primarily oriented towards aiding academic research and teaching. It is also open to a wider public.

Brief biographies and portraits of selected Jewish enlightenment thinkers of the 18th century are provided under the link Authors. Thorough bibliographies of the individual authors are also provided under this link, as are those works that are already available in digitalized form.Haskala.net is still in the development phase. It would profit from any and all substantiated collaboration, including references to and contributions on Jewish enlightenment thinkers and their lives and works. We look forward to your participation.
