Katherine Aron-Beller is lecturer of Jewish History in the Rothberg International School of the Hebrew University and at Tel Aviv University. She received her PhD in early modern European Jewish history from the University of Haifa in 2002. Her areas of expertise are early modern Jewish-Christian relations, the early modern Inquisition  and the history of anti-semitism. Her books include Jews on Trial: The Papal Inquisition in Modena 1598-1638 published in 2011 by Manchester University Press; an edited book with Christopher Black called The Roman Inquisition; Centre versus Peripheries (Brill, 2018) and most recently Christian Images and Jewish Desecrators: The History of an Allegation 400-1700 which is under review at the University of Pennsylvania press. Her current project is a study of two holocaust memoirs, written by a German Jewish survivor, one written in 1945 and the second in 1995. Neither of these memoirs have been published and Aron-Beller is studying the differences between perception and memory of Nazi persecution. She has been co-editor of H-Judaic since 2013.
