Chapter Summary

The paucity of documentation for the first thousand years or so of Jewish history in Sicily limits our ability to trace in detail the presence of Jews even in those towns and villages for which evidence is available. A large number of the localities for which they were reported either ceased to exist, or nothing further was ever heard of Jews living there. Others endured right down to the expulsion of 1492. These included the major Sicilian centres, such as Palermo, Messina, Syracuse and Catania. This chapter provides the Jewish settlements in Sicily from Antiquity to Aragonese times in alphabetical order:.

Keywords: Aragonese; Catania; Jewish settlements; Messina; Palermo; Sicily
