Print of an unruly crowd of Jews in a synagogue

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.288

Lithograph by Konstanine von Guise (1810-1858) after a drawing by Hieronymus Hess (1799-1850), ca. 1823. It depicts an unruly crowd of men in a synagogue interior in Rome. The men stand in several groups, talking, smoking, reading, and sleeping, with some apparently engaged in business deals. A few men wearing tallit, or prayer shawls, appear to be trying to worship amid the crowd. The print is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic artifacts and visual materials.
