Expulsion of Jews from France 22 July 1306 #general

Nick <tulse04-news@...>

According to the BBC Religion and Ethics Newsletter the Jews were expelled
from France by King Philip IV on 22 July 1306 (the day after the fast of 9th
Av in the Hebrew calendar - which is on Thursday).

I knew, of course, that the Jews were expelled >from England in 1290. I
hadn't appreciated that a similar fate subsequently happened to French Jews.

Apparently there was a series of readmittance and reexpulsion until 1294.

This didn't encompass the full area of modern France and there was
subsequent expansion of the kingdom into areas to which they had fled
(Burgundy, Savoy, Dauphiné, Roussillon, and the papal lands at Avignon).
