1483 500 Jews in Jerusalem

Old City of Jerusalem“The Christian pilgrim, Felix Fabri, relates:

‘there are scattered throughout the city (e.g. Jerusalem) many chapels of heretics [i.e. Christian sects other than the Latin], many Saracen mosques, Jewish synagogues, and Samaritan tabernacles… There are more than five hundred Jews, and more than a thousand Christians, of every sect and country; but the fewest of all are they of the Latin rite.’ ”
