Die Prager Juden in der Zeit vor der Schlacht am Weißen Berg.

Handel und Wirtschaftsgebaren im Spiegel des Liber albus Judeorum 1577 – 1601.

[Jews in Prague prior to the Battle of White Mountain. Trade and Economic Behaviour of the Jews in Prague described in the Liber albus Judeorum 1577 – 1601.]

This is the first detailed analysis of the history of the Jewish community in Prague prior to the Battle of White Mountain (1490 – 1620), using previously unstudied sources. It focuses on Jewish merchant and economic activities in Prague. The study contradicts the onesided myths of “the Jew” as a profiteer and moneylender, drawing a more complex and realistic picture of Jewish involvement in trade and commerce.
