Chapter Summary

In the period following the Statuta Ecclesiae Antiqua, until the late sixth century, seven councils deal with relations between Christians and Jews. Most canons of the councils discussing Jews and judaizing behavior concern the issue of joint meals and marriages between Christians and Jews, yet several new topics are addressed as well. This chapter discusses the further developments of these Gallic councils. After this Gallic council's discussion, chronologically the next council is that of Macon (583). At the council of Narbonne (589), it is seen for the first time a ruling against Jews singing psalms as they carry the deceased to the grave (c. 9). The reason for ending the current discussion, at this point in time is the fact that from here the canons, on the whole, tend to be directed more towards Jews, and less against the Christian faithful involved in Jewish practices.
