The last Flavius

For those who master the Dutch language: the Jewish history and culture program of the Joodse Omroep, Flavius has had its last edition, or at least the last that was brought to you by the professional of OVT. It has been a fascinating series and it got a fabulous closing with discussions about books and history. The book of Judges, The Rise of Heterosexuality and the Invention of the Jewish Man by Daniel Boyarin, Kaddish for an Unborn Child by Imre Kertész and De reisbeschrijving van Abraham Levie (1719-1723).
