Three Jewish Commuties in Medieval Spain:

Castellon de la Plana, Burriana, Villareal
Hispania Judaica, v.8
Jerusalem: Magnes Press, Hebrew University, 1990.
Index of names compiled by Mathilde Tagger

Authored by two Spanish scholars, the book describes the history of three neighboring communities in the medieval kingdom of Valencia on the basis of uncovered archival material in local archives.

Many aspects of the Jewish life of the period including the political and legal status of the communities, their organization and economy are examined for each of the three neighboring Jewish communities Burriana, Castellón de la Plana and Villareal. The documentation is presented in the original language - Catalan or Latin - along with an English résumé.

The present index includes 136 surnames found in the studied documents. The covered period is mainly the 15th century although some names are from the 14th century.

For each surname, one will find the related given name, the place and year where and when it was found. For some of the names a note has been added.
