Chapter Summary

This conclusory chapter brings the history of the Jews in Sicily under Aragonese-Spanish rule to an end and concludes the millennial history of the Jews on the island from Roman times to the expulsion of 1492. The total absence of documents from internal Jewish sources, including communal, literary, legal and ritualistic sources available for many other European mediaeval Jewish communities. The Jews of Sicily under the rule of Aragon-Spain became more and more integrated into the Jewry regime of Western Europe. The relationship between the Crown and its Jews, and for that matter between the barons and their Jews, was based on charters of privileges which spelt out the relationship between the two parties, their rights and duties. Sicilian Jews were also engaged in transport and mining, carpentry and tanning, and in every branch of the forge and smithy.

Keywords: Aragonese-Spanish rule; European mediaeval Jewish communities; Sicilian Jews
