Chapter Summary

The transition from Angevin to Aragonese rule was not accompanied by the flight abroad of part of the population, including Jews, as had happened in earlier centuries at times of regime change. In the ensuing years, there was an influx of Catalonians to Sicily, Christians and Jews. Immigration from abroad was not the only factor contributing to population changes among the Jews in Sicily. There existed a considerable degree of internal mobility of Sicilian Jews, which probably exceeded that of the general population, although it is well-nigh impossible to quantify it with any degree of accuracy. The fine imposed on the Jews for their attempt to travel to Jerusalem amounted to 600 ounces, subsequently increased to 1,000, three times the sum paid by the Burgos.
