Jews of Sarum

FOUND IN:

There were small Jewish communities all over medieval England, including in the little town of Wilton, just two miles from Sarum. The unexpected story of how the Jewish community helped finance the Church, the vexed question of 'usury', and the way that the Jews were expelled from England late in the thirteenth century are all related in some detail in the 'Founding' chapter of SARUM.
