Trace Portugal’s Jewish history over centuries with a local Portuguese expert, from the settlement of Sephardic Jews to the expulsion of Jews from Portugal.

In this conversation, we will discuss the history of Jews in Portugal, a compelling and fascinating story spanning nearly 1000 years of history. We’ll begin by discussing the first arrival of Jews in Portugal with the settlement of Sephardic Jews. We’ll focus on the narrative of these earlier years and the historical narrative from the 12th to 16th centuries. We’ll concentrate on their cultural, economic, and social dimensions during this first section of our conversation.

We’ll move onto discussing Jewish Communities and Judiarias (Jewish quarters), using Medieval Lisbon as a first-hand example to demonstrate this particular topic. We’ll conclude our online conversation by learning about the tragedies of the Iberian kingdoms, with a focus in Portugal. We’ll learn about pogroms, expulsions, and even forced conversions into Christianity. We’ll finish with learning about the legacy of this important community in contemporary Lisbon today.

This seminar leaves you with a profound understanding of what it was, and is, to be Jewish in Portugal. There is time at the end to ask further questions on the subject.

Positive review of Jewish Portugal

This topic interested me since I k ew very little about it.
Tiago was very good in organizing what he wanted us to learn. He kept on topic and clearly knows his material. The slides and maps were chosen well. It is a big topic covering a large time period and Tiago made it clear. It made me want to learn more.
