Knowledge of Newly Discovered Lands among Jewish Communities of Europe (from 1492 to the Thirty Years' War)

IN 1707, TOBIAS COHEN PUBLISHED Ma'aseh Tuviyah, a book that has justly been called "the most influential early modern Hebrew textbook of the sciences."1 He described his own efforts without undue modesty: "I have composed a book containing the knowledge and scholarly disciplines that every literate man must know."2 One of these "scholarly disciplines" was geography, and the "knowledge" needed by early eighteenth-century Jewish literati included rudimentary facts about the New World. Cohen devoted a small section of his book to what he called "the discovery of a new land on the continent of America, which was discovered by the foreigners."
