Au Xth Congress of the european Association of Jewish Studies (Paris, 20-24 juillet 2014), Ingrid Houssaye a présenté une intervention sur le thème :
« Jewish Merchant Networks in Early Modern Mediterranean
as Perceived through Florentine Business Archives »
Correspondences and account books left by Florentine merchants established in different places of the Mediterranean area in Early Modern time, such as Majorca or Constantinople, give a lot of information about their Jewish economic partners or clients. Sometimes containing some writings in Hebrew letters, the documents that I will present allow to identify Jewish people and networks, and to understand their spatial configuration.
