Jewry law, the corpus of legal texts and practices that regulated the life of the Jews in their relations with mediaeval Christian society, is one of the main sources of evidence on mediaeval Jewish history. This volume presents a comprehensive collection of the legal texts bearing specifically on the Jews during the early Middle Ages, from the disappearance of the unitary imperial system in the fifth and sixth centuries to the emergence of centralized governmental structures and the codification of canon law, roughly between the close of the eleventh century and the middle of the twelfth. Each text, reproduced in the original Greek or Latin and in English translation, is accompanied by a short study of its specific history and context.
