Chapter Summary

In order to understand why Sol was sacrificed, it is important to consider the status of Jews in Morocco, their situation in 1834, and the general state of affairs in Moroccan society at this time. Another important issue is the nature of relations between Morocco and Europe in the 1830s and the history of those relations up to that point. When reading the different accounts of Sol's martyrdom, it is important to consider the historical context, particularly relations between Morocco and European powers and the effects of the French conquest of Algeria on Morocco. This is especially important background to consider when reading the European accounts of her story. In this chapter, the author discusses the relations between Europe and Morocco in the 1830s and how they changed over the course of the 19th century.
