in England. Jewishness was a covert state, a state that entailed multiple creeds, nationalities, even names. To an extraordinary degree, the Elizabethan Jew had to create himself, and the self he created was plural and unstable. Several anecdotes will help confirm my point.
uropean Ashkenazic Jews had served William of Normandy as moneylenders. They came over the channel with him and perhaps were even brought by him to serve the same function in England. Unpopular and in the long run dispensable, these Jews were banished in 1290. James Shapiro points out that the historical record is obscure as to the number of Jews expelled, and rightly notes that it is clearer that the English wanted to regard their country as free of Jews than that Jews were truly absent. (Indeed, it is equally clear that there were a significant number of Jews living in London before the 1654 Whitehall Conference, at which the return of the Jews was inconclusively debated. )(6) Even after the expulsion, there were probably some persons living in England descended from Jews who had convened to Christianity. The most significant contact between England and the Jews during the so called "middle period" involved Sephardic Jews from the Iberian Peninsula. Spain and Portugal possessed the largest and most important Jewish communities in Europe. In both countries there were some Jews living openly as Jews.
Some of these converts were no doubt sincere in their new profession, and eventually their descendants assimilated into the larger Christian community. Others were Marranos persons avowing Christianity, but covertly continuing to live as Jews. (7) In 1492, Ferdinand and Isabella expelled all Jews from Spain, and in 1497 all Portuguese Jews were forcibly converted to Christianity. Most of the Jews driven from Spain fled to the relatively tolerant Turkish empire. But some Portuguese New Christians, many from families already playing a dominant role in commerce Adidas Yeezy All Colors and finance, left the now inhospitable Iberian peninsula and established new bases of commercial operations in the Low Countries, especially in the city of Antwerp. (8)Some Portuguese New Christians settled in England. There they played an important role in trade with the Iberian nations.
A Portuguese Jew named Brandao, the son of a blacksmith, came to England and entered a Domus Conversorum in .
They knew the countries and their languages; some of them had family members in Portugal who could participate in commercial ventures. A Marrano could claim English nationality for purposes of bringing goods through English customs, and Portuguese nationality in that country. Though the hundred or more Marranos in London lived nominally as Christians, they at least on occasion participated in Jewish worship. (9) The London Jewish or New Christian community was prosperous and not without prominence. But veiling or even denying one's actual beliefs and practices was a condition of Jewish life Adidas Yeezy Price Uk
