While the policies of subsequent Kings Liuva II —Witteric —and Gundemar — are unknown to us, Sisebut — embarked on Recared's course with renewed vigor. Soon after upholding the edict of compulsory baptism for children of mixed marriages, Sisebut instituted what was to become a recurring phenomenon in Spanish official policy, the first edicts expelling Jews from Spain. Following his decree that Jews must either convert or be expelled, some fled to Gaul or North Africawhile as many as 90, converted.
Many of these conversoslike those of later periods, maintained their Jewish identities in secret. Inthe Fourth Council of Toledowhile taking a stance in opposition to compulsory baptism, convened to address the problem of crypto-Judaism. It was decided that, if a professed Christian was determined to be a practicing Jew, his or her children were to be taken away to be raised in monasteries or trusted Christian households.
He directed the Sixth Council of Toledo to order that only Catholics could remain in the kingdom, and taking an unusual step further, Chintila excommunicated "in advance" any of his successors who did not act in accordance with his anti-Jewish edicts. Again, many converted while others chose exile. And yet the "problem" continued. The Eighth Council of Toledo in again tackled the issue of Jews within the realm. Further measures at this time included the forbidding of all Jewish rites including circumcision and the observation of the Shabbatand all converted Jews had to promise to put to death, either by burning or by stoningany of their brethren known to have relapsed to Judaism.
The council was aware that prior efforts had been frustrated by lack of compliance among authorities on the local level: therefore, anyone — including nobles and clergy — found to have aided Jews in the practice of Judaism was to be punished by seizure of one quarter of their property and excommunication.
These efforts again proved unsuccessful. The Jewish population remained sufficiently sizable as to prompt Wamba — to issue limited expulsion orders against them, and the reign of Erwig — also seemed vexed by the issue. The Twelfth Council of Toledo again called for forced baptism, and, for those who disobeyed, seizure of property, corporal punishment, exile, and slavery.
Jewish children over seven years of age were taken from their parents and similarly dealt with in Erwig also took measures to ensure that Catholic sympathizers would not be inclined to aid Jews in their efforts to subvert the council's rulings.
Heavy fines awaited any nobles who acted in favor of the Jews, and members of the clergy who were remiss in enforcement were subject to a number of punishments. Egica —recognizing the wrongness of forced baptismrelaxed the pressure on the conversosbut kept it up on practicing Jews.
Economic hardships included increased taxes and the forced sale, at a fixed price, of all property ever acquired from Christians. This effectively ended all agricultural activity for the Jews of Spain. Furthermore, Jews were not to engage in commerce with the Christians of the kingdom nor conduct business with Christians overseas. Inat the Council of Toledo, Jews were condemned to slavery by the Visigoths because of a plot to revolt against them encouraged by the Eastern Roman Empire and Romans still residing in Spain.
Under the Catholic Visigoths persecutions increases. The degree of complicity which the Jews had in the Islamic invasion in is uncertain. Yet, openly treated as enemies in the country in which they had resided for generations, it would be no surprise for them to have appealed to the Moors to the south, quite tolerant in comparison to the Visigoths, for aid. In any case, in they were accused of conspiring with Muslims across the Mediterranean. Declared traitors, Jews, including baptized Jews, found their property confiscated and themselves enslaved.
This decree exempted only the converts who dwelt in the mountain passes of Septimaniawho were necessary for the kingdom's protection. The Eastern Roman Empire sent its navy on numerous occasions at the end of the 7th and beginning of the 8th centuries to try to instill uprisings in the Jewish and Christian Roman populations in Spain and Gaul against their Visigoth and Frankish rulers, which was also aimed at halting the expansion of Muslim Arabs in the Roman world.
The Jews of Spain were utterly embittered and alienated by Catholic rule at the time of the Muslim invasion. The Moors were perceived as a liberating force  and welcomed by Jews eager to help them to administer the country.
In many conquered towns the Muslims left the garrison in the hands of the Jews before proceeding further north. Thus was initiated the period that became known as the " Golden Age " for Spanish Jews. With the victory of Tariq ibn Ziyad inthe lives of the Sephardim changed dramatically. For the most part, the invasion of the Moors was welcomed by the Jews of Iberia.
Both Muslim and Catholic sources tell us that Jews provided valuable aid to the invaders. The Chronicle of Lucas de Tuy records that when the Catholics left Toledo on Sunday before Easter to go to the Church of Saint Leocadia to listen to the divine sermon, the Jews acted treacherously and informed the Saracens. Then they closed the gates of the city before the Catholics and opened them for the Moors. Although in the cases of some towns, the behavior of the Jews may have been conducive to Muslim success, such was of limited impact overall.
In spite of the restrictions placed upon the Jews as dhimmislife under Muslim rule was one of great opportunity in comparison to Sometime Ago - La Fiesta under prior Catholic Visigothsas testified by the influx of Jews from abroad. To Jews throughout the Catholic and Muslim worlds, Iberia was seen as a land of relative tolerance and opportunity.
Following initial Arab-Berber victories, and especially with the establishment of Umayyad dynasty rule by Abd al-Rahman I inthe native Jewish community was joined by Jews from the rest of Europe, as well as from Arab territories from Morocco to Mesopotamia the latter region known as Babylonia in Jewish sources. Contacts with Middle Eastern communities were strengthened and it was during this time that the influence of the Babylonian academies of Sura and Pumbedita was at its greatest.
As a result, until the midth century, much of Sephardic scholarship focused on Halakha. Although not as influential, traditions of the Levantknown as Palestinewere also introduced, in an increased interest in Hebrew language and biblical studies.
Arabic culture, of course, also made a lasting impact on Sephardic cultural development. General reevaluation of scripture was prompted by Muslim anti-Jewish polemics and the spread of rationalismas well as the anti- Rabbanite polemics of Karaite Judaism. In adopting Arabic, as had the Babylonian geonimthe heads of the Talmudic Academies in Babylonianot only were the cultural and intellectual achievements of Arabic culture opened up to the educated Jew, but much of the scientific and philosophical speculation of Greek culture, which had been best preserved by Arab scholars, were as well.
The meticulous regard which the Arabs had for grammar and style also had the effect of stimulating an interest among Jews in philological matters in general. From the second half of the 9th century, most Jewish prose, including many non-halakhic religious works, were in Arabic.
The thorough adoption of Arabic greatly facilitated the assimilation of Jews into Arabic culture. Although initially the often bloody disputes among Muslim factions generally kept Jews out of the political sphere, the first approximately two centuries which preceded the " Golden Age " were marked by increased activity by Jews in a variety of professions, including medicine, commerce, finance, and agriculture.
By the ninth century, some members of the Sephardic community felt confident enough to take part in proselytizing amongst previously Jewish "Catholics". Each man, using such epithets as "wretched compiler", tried to convince the other to return to his former religion, to no avail. The inauguration of the Golden Age is closely identified with the career of his Jewish councillor, Hasdai ibn Shaprut — Originally a court physician, Shaprut's official duties went on to include the supervision of customs and foreign trade.
It was in his capacity as dignitary that he corresponded with the kingdom of the Khazarswho had converted to Judaism in the 8th century. It was within this context of cultural patronage that interest in Hebrew studies developed and flourished. In addition to being a poet himself, Hasdai encouraged and supported the work of other Sephardic writers. Subjects covered the spectrum, encompassing religion, nature, music, and politics, as well as pleasure.
For the only time between Biblical times and the origins of the modern state of Israela Jew Samuel ha-Nagid commanded a Jewish army. Hasdai benefitted world Jewry not only indirectly by creating a favorable environment for scholarly pursuits within Iberia, but also by using his influence to intervene on behalf of foreign Jews, as is reflected in his letter to the Byzantine Princess Helena.
In it he requested protection for the Jews under Byzantine rule, attesting to the fair treatment of the Christians of al-Andalusand indicating that such was contingent on the treatment of Jews abroad. The intellectual achievements of the Sephardim of al-Andalus influenced the lives of non-Jews as well.
Thought by many to have been written by a Christian, this work was admired by Christians and studied in monasteries throughout the Middle Ages.
In addition to training the mind in logical yet abstract and subtle modes of thought, the study of the natural world, as the direct study of the work of the Creator, was ideally a way to better understand and become closer to God. Following in the tradition of the Talmud and the Midrashmany of the most notable Jewish philosophers were dedicated to the field of ethics although this ethical Jewish rationalism rested on the notion that traditional approaches had not been successful in their treatments of the subject in that they were lacking in rational, scientific arguments.
In addition to contributions of original work, the Sephardim were active as translators. Greek texts were rendered into Arabic, Arabic into Hebrew, Hebrew and Arabic into Latin, and all combinations of vice versa. In translating the great works of Arabic, Hebrew, and Greek into Latin, Iberian Jews were instrumental in bringing the fields of science and philosophy, which formed much of the basis of Renaissance learning, into the rest of Europe.
In its stead arose the independent taifa principalities under the rule of local Arab, Berber, Slavicor Muwallad leaders. Rather than having a stifling effect, the disintegration of the caliphate expanded the opportunities to Jewish and other professionals. The services of Jewish scientists, doctors, traders, poets, and scholars were generally valued by the Christian as well as Muslim rulers of regional centers, especially as recently conquered towns were put back in order.
Among the most prominent Jews to serve as viziers in the Muslim taifas were the ibn Nagrelas or Naghrela. In addition to his roles as policy director and military leader as one of only two Jews to command Muslim armies — the other being his son JosephSamuel ibn Nagrela was an accomplished poet, and his introduction to the Talmud is standard today.
His son Joseph ibn Naghrela also acted as vizier. He was murdered in the Granada massacre. There were other Jewish viziers serving in SevilleLucenaand Saragossa. The Granada massacre of was an anti-Jewish pogrom that took place in Granada in when a Muslim mob stormed the royal palace where Joseph had sought refuge, then crucified him.
After that, the instigators attacked Jewish families, killing approximately 4, Granada Jews. The Golden Age ended before the completion of the Christian Reconquista. The Granada massacre was one of the earliest signs of a decline in the status of Jews, which resulted largely from the penetration and influence of increasingly zealous Islamic sects from North Africa.
Following the fall of Toledo to Christians inthe ruler of Seville sought relief from the Almoravides. This ascetic sect abhorred the liberality of the Islamic culture of al-Andalusincluding the position of authority that some dhimmis held over Muslims. In addition to battling the Christians, who were gaining ground, the Almoravides implemented numerous reforms to bring al-Andalus more in line with their notion of proper Islam.
In spite of large-scale forcible conversions, Sephardic culture was not entirely decimated. Members of Lucena's Jewish community, for example, managed to bribe their way out of conversion. As the spirit of Andalusian Islam was absorbed by the Almoravides, policies concerning Jews were relaxed.
The poet Moses ibn Ezra continued to write during this time, and several Jews served as diplomats and physicians to the Almoravides. Wars in North Africa with Muslim tribes eventually forced the Almoravides to withdraw their forces from Iberia. As the Christians advanced, Iberian Muslims again appealed to their brethren to the south, this time Sometime Ago - La Fiesta those who had displaced the Almoravides in North Africa.
The Almohadswho had taken control of much of Islamic Iberia byfar surpassed the Almoravides in fundamentalist outlook, and they treated the dhimmis harshly. Jews and Christians were expelled from Morocco and Islamic Spain. Faced with the choice of either death or conversion, many Jews emigrated. Meanwhile, the Reconquista continued in the north.
By the early 12th century, conditions for some Jews in the emerging Christian kingdoms became increasingly favorable. As had happened during the reconstruction of towns following the breakdown of authority under the Umayyads, the services of Jews were employed by the Christian leaders who were increasingly emerging victorious during the later Reconquista.
Their knowledge of the language and culture of the enemy, their skills as diplomats and professionals, as well as their desire for relief from intolerable conditions, rendered their services of great value to the Christians during the Reconquista — the very same reasons that they had proved useful to the Arabs in the early stages of the Moslem invasion. The necessity to have conquerors settle in reclaimed territories also outweighed the prejudices of anti-Semitismat least while the Moslem threat was imminent.
Thus, as conditions in Islamic Iberia worsened, immigration to Christian principalities increased. The Jews from the Muslim south were not entirely secure in their northward migrations, however.
Old prejudices were compounded by newer ones. Suspicions of complicity with the Moslems were alive and well as Jews immigrated from Muslim territories, speaking the Muslim tongue. However, many of the newly arrived Jews of the north prospered during the late eleventh and early twelfth centuries.
The majority of Latin documentation regarding Jews during this period refers to their landed property, fields, and vineyards. In many ways life had come full circle for the Sephardim of al-Andalus. As conditions became more oppressive in the areas under Muslim rule during the 12th and 13th centuries, Jews again looked to an outside culture for relief.
Christian leaders of reconquered cities granted them extensive autonomy, and Jewish scholarship recovered and developed as communities grew in size and importance Assis, p. However, the Reconquista Jews never reached the same heights as had those of the Golden Age. Catholic princes, [ who? In their operations against the Moors they did not spare the Jews, destroying their synagogues and killing their teachers and scholars.
In Leon many Jews owned real estate, and engaged in agriculture and viticulture as well as in the handicrafts; and here, as in other towns, they lived on friendly terms with the Christian population.
Alfonso VI, the conqueror of Toledowas tolerant and benevolent in his attitude toward the Jews, for which he won the praise of Pope Alexander II. To estrange the wealthy and industrious Jews from the Moors he offered the former various privileges. In the fuero of Najara Sepulveda, issued and confirmed by him inhe not only granted the Jews full equality with Catholics, but he even accorded them the rights enjoyed by the nobility.
To show their gratitude to the king for the rights granted them, the Jews willingly placed themselves at his and the country's service. Alfonso's army contained 40, Jews, who were distinguished from the other combatants by their black-and-yellow turbans; for the sake of this Jewish contingent the Battle of Sagrajas was not begun until after the Sabbath had passed.
Alfonso intended to punish the murderers and incendiaries, but died in June, before he could carry out his intention. Alfonso VIIwho assumed the title of Emperor of Leon, Toledo, and Santiago, curtailed in the beginning of his reign the rights and liberties which his father had granted the Jews. He ordered that neither a Jew nor a convert might exercise legal authority over Catholics, and he held the Jews responsible for the collection of the royal taxes.
Soon, however, he became more friendly, confirming the Jews in all their former privileges and even granting them additional ones, by which they were placed on equality with Catholics. Considerable influence with the king was enjoyed by Judah ben Joseph ibn Ezra Nasi. After the conquest of Calatrava the king placed Judah in command of the fortress, later making him his court chamberlain. Judah ben Joseph stood in such favor with the king that the latter, at his request, not only admitted into Toledo the Jews who had fled from the persecutions of the Almohades, but even assigned many fugitives dwellings in Flascala near ToledoFromistaCarrion, Palenciaand other places, where new congregations were soon established.
Jews fought in both armies, and after the declaration of peace they were placed in charge of the fortresses. When the king was defeated at the Battle of Alarcos by the Almohades under Yusuf Abu Ya'kub al-Mansurthe defeat was attributed to the king's love-affair with Fermosa, and she and her relatives were murdered in Toledo by the nobility.
After the victory at Alarcos the emir Muhammad al-Nasir ravaged Castile with a powerful army and threatened to overrun the whole of Catholic Spain. The Archbishop of Toledo called to crusade to aid Alfonso. In this war against the Moors the king was greatly aided by the wealthy Jews of Toledo, especially by his "almoxarife mayor", the learned and generous Nasi Joseph ben Solomon ibn Shoshan Al-Hajib ibn Amar. The Crusaders were hailed with joy in Toledo, but this joy was soon changed to sorrow, as far as the Jews were concerned.
The Crusaders began the "holy war" in Toledo by robbing and killing the Jews, and if the knights had not checked them with armed forces all the Jews in Toledo would have been slain. When, after the battle of Las Navas de TolosaAlfonso victoriously entered Toledo, the Jews went to meet him in triumphal procession. Shortly before his death Oct. The clergy's endeavors against the Jews became more and more pronounced.
Spanish Jews of both sexes, like the Jews of France, were compelled to distinguish themselves from Catholics by wearing a yellow badge on their clothing; this order was issued to keep them from associating with Catholics, although the reason given was that it was ordered for their own safety.
The papal bull issued by Pope Innocent IV in Aprilto the effect that Jews might not build a new synagogue without special permission, also made it illegal for Jews to proselytize, under pain of death and confiscation of property. They might not associate with the Catholics, live under the same roof with them, eat and drink with them, or use the same bath; neither might a Catholic partake of wine which had been prepared by a Jew.
The Jews might not employ Catholic nurses or servants, and Catholics might use only medicinal remedies which had been prepared by competent Catholic apothecaries. Jews were also forbidden to appear in public on Good Friday.
They owned real estate, and they cultivated their land with their own hands; they filled public offices, and on account of their industry they became wealthy while their knowledge and ability won them respect and influence. But this prosperity roused the jealousy of the people and provoked the hatred of the clergy; the Jews had to suffer much through these causes. The Jews were vassals of the king, the same as Christian commoners.
