The absence of capital letters in the Hebrew script led to the decoration of initial words, or sometimes whole verses. Another peculiar Jewish element was the use of minute script to form geometric or floral design. The spread of the printing press in the sixteenth century signaled the end of the manuscript as an independent : Eli Barnavi.   This was the attitude of Jews in biblical times as well as Christians and Muslims in the Middle Ages—although the means and methods were different with each religion. It is not too surprising, then, that Christianity’s main rivals vanished after it was declared the official religion of the Roman Empire in the fourth century. In the middle ages, the Jewish people were commonly looked down on. During the Roman times, they were considered citizens, but in the middle ages, they were not even that. Instead, they were called resident foreigners. Their lives were a lot like those of the citizens, though.

This was the attitude of Jews in biblical times as well as Christians and Muslims in the Middle Ages although the means and methods were different with each religion.

Usually, these expulsions, even from entire countries, were not permanent, and the Jews were able to return after several years — sometimes even.

Age of Patriarchs—Creation to c. BC. The timeline begins with Adam in Eden, then on to Noah and the Flood and the birth of Israel through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Age of Israel—c. BC to c. BC. Covers the history of the Jewish nation, from Moses and the Exodus to King David and the prophets Daniel and Isaiah. In ancient Egypt, a land with a lot of scribes, only half a percent were literate Now, even if it is taken into consideration that training in hieroglyphs takes much more time than script with some 22 symbols, still the conclusion of the extent of literacy in a neighboring country some millennia later with literacy rates that are some six times. Property deeds and other documents, which came to light in the 19 th century, revealed that Joseph was a leading member of the Jewish community in Colchester in the 13 th century, and the eldest son of Rabbi Yechiel of Paris, a leading Talmudic scholar in 13 th-century France and head of the renowned Paris yeshiva. Joseph had spent time in prison (we don’t know for what, exactly) and on his.   The Bible was also translated into Latin, and the gospel spread throughout Europe. The Middle Ages, which lasted from about the 5th to the 15th century, was dominated in Europe by the Holy Roman Empire. This was the time of the Crusades, the Great Schism, the Inquisition, and the iron rule of the Roman Catholic Church.
