The Portuguese Jewish Nation of Saint-Esprit-lès-Bayonne

The American Dimension

THE JEWISH NATION OF SAINT-ESPRIT-LÈS-BAYONNE was established on the Atlantic coast of France, at the westernmost point of the diaspora, by Portuguese New Christians originating from the forced conversions of 1497. Like the Jewish Nation of Bordeaux, it owed its existence to the Lettres patentes granted in 1550 by Henri II to the New Christians or Portuguese merchants. Consequently, the status of these groups, who were not recognized as Jews, was an ambiguous one up until the French Revolution. Bayonne was the Jewish community that was closest to the Iberian Peninsula. Along with its sister communities of Bidache, Peyrehorade, and Labastide-Clairence, it received emigrants from the Peninsula beginning in the sixteenth century. Some of these emigrants went on to the New World.1
