Chapter Summary

It is particularly noteworthy amongst the Jews that their direct descendants are living proof of the ancient tradition that they accepted responsibility for the death of Christ upon themselves and their sons. Those Jews who have small or short tails at the bottom of their spines are direct descendants of those who were teachers amongst them and whom they called Rabies and which Francisco de Torrejoncillo calls Rabinos. Those men once sat in judgment and today teach their Mosaic Law as teachers and judges. As their punishment, and so that they cannot sit down without suffering discomfort and pain, this short tail emerges when they sit down. Those Jews in whose mouth innumerable worms enter and exit to bite their tongue when they lie down, as it has been observed many times, were and are the descendants of a woman called Beatrice, a native of Jerusalem.
