3 Pogroms Unpacked Events in Valencia v. events in Barcelona Rising social anxieties fueling existing religious tensions Political tensions

4 Jewish response If perchance anyone, Christian or Muslim, compelled by audacity, wishes or attempts to invade or rob those Jews, their houses, or their goods…the Jews can defend themselves…against the aforesaid invaders and injurers, whosoever they be and of whatever status.”

5 Jewish response And that if in said invasion or conflict the invaders are hit or injured, even if death is the result, no petition or demand can be made against the said Jews. And if the friends of one thus injured or hit wish vindictively to inflict harm or damage upon those Jews, we and our officials are bound to defend and maintain the Jews and their goods.
