An unpublished document about the Jewish hospital of Lleida
Keywords:Lleida, hospital, Jewish
Recently, in the Arxiu Capitular of Lleida, we have discovered a document from the beginning of the fourteenth Century which proves the existence of a hospital managed by the Jewish brotherhood of the heqdeix. It is about an annual donation of twelve sous that the Jewish council of Lleida gave indefinitely to the brotherhood to pay an emphyteutic lease of the same quantity, this was to maintain some houses used by the hospital. The document discovers the existence of this hospital and also gives information about the internal organization of the Jewish community, among others: the number of managers, their families and the rental of the taxes.
