Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a description of Jews in early modern Spain by Francisco de Torrejoncillo. The Jews were punished by God, who cast them across the world like a ball. They were expelled from Spain by King Fernando and Queen Isabel in the year 1490 and twice from Portugal, firstly in the year 1493 by King João II and then in the year 1500 by King Manuel, eight years after their expulsion from Spain. When King Philip I, the King of France, expelled them from it, he first of all confiscated their property as he would have done from traitors. Their propensity for treason is so ancient that the Toledan Council mentions a conspiracy they fomented against the King of Spain. After the death of Jesus Christ, the ill-fated Jews incurred great penalties as a result of it and everything that they have suffered has originated from this great punishment.
