“The following is a working list of those members of the medieval Oxford Jewish community for which we have records. English medieval Jewries are the best documented 13th century Jewish communities in the world, and Oxford is, arguably, the best documented of them all.
“While this is presented merely as a work-in-progress, only the slightest perusal of it will reveal to any reader the wealth of characters who inhabited this remarkable Jewish quarter. Enjoy browsing this in the state at which it is at the moment—it tells of some 250 medieval Oxford Jewish individuals.” (research of Pam Manix, e-mail contact: firstname.lastname@example.org)
