Abstract:The beautiful synagogues of the Venetian Ghetto are uniquely preserved in their original historical context. Their architecture and sculptural decoration testify to the cultural and artistic achievements of the Venetian Jewish community throughout the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries. This thesis evaluates the cultural environment that shaped the synagogues, looking at religious and social movements of their period. It also uses the artistic evidence of the synagogues themselves to understand the patrons who built them. Strong currents of mysticism and messianism are expressed in the iconography of the sculpture applied to key architectural features. This decoration is introspective, looking to Jewish roots and symbolism of the Hebrew Bible, and is not assimilated to exterior models. Both Jewish and Venetian, synagogue architecture in Venice shows signs of the artistic synthesis that was taking place in many areas of literary and artistic endeavor in the ghetto during the Renaissance and early modern periods.
