The Jewish Street in Wrocław till the beginnings of the 15th Century (part 2)

Languages of publication



High level dynamics of real estate market as well as possession of many estates by relatively few people make it impossible to currently analyse which property was owned by Jews, with only few exceptions. Such property as was bought or sold prior to 1361 (afterwards Jewish property did not appear in books of aldermen (libri scabinorum) would not be as high as the number of houses inhabited by Jews, making estimation of population of “Jewish street” very uncertain. Among distinct features of Jewish property was a high amount of low-class housing, designated gebude. The issue of their possession was distinct from possession of land on which such a house was situated. The article indicates as well the impossibility of correctly identifying mentioned in sources synagogues and grounded in historiography significant misunderstandings regarding this issue.
