Chapter Summary

The Augustinian formula, based on the remnant shall be saved and slay them not lest my people forget remained valid in Aragonese Sicily, as it had been throughout mediaeval Christian Europe. The sermons, some of which the Jews were made to attend, were the cause of much anti-Jewish feeling throughout Europe, including Sicily, and the need for governmental support of the Jews. The bone of contention was the location of the synagogue and Jewish cemetery near the local Dominican monastery and church of S. Maria Annunziata. Jewish pravity and corrupting influence had been successfully extirpated. The Church, or rather that section which never accepted the Augustinian formula of relative tolerance, had triumphed over the perfidious Jew.
