Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a description of Jews in early modern Spain and Portugal. In the time of King João of Portugal, the Jews were greatly persecuted throughout that kingdom. They turned to the Pope with great complaints. Through representations to the Papal Nuncio, and also their agent in Rome Duarte de Paz whom they instructed to spend as much money as was necessary, they sought to have clauses inserted in the crusading bulls absolving those who had committed the sin of heresy. In the year 1239, the extremely devout King Louis of France came to know of the great lack of respect and blasphemies of the Jews and of the foolishness of their Talmud as well as what acts they committed against our Lord Jesus Christ, His Holy Mother and the saints in Heaven.
