(Interesting why Christians didn't wash their hands before eating, they might be suspected of being Jews.

Yes, that is interesting. There is a fascinating scene in James Michener's novel The Source, where a Christian is arrested for inadvertently spitting up a piece of pork in public view. Everytime I read about this kind of stuff it seems like the sort of thing that would occur on some kind of weird, alien Star Trek pseudo-universe. But nope - its history! :shock:

Hi everyone,

I've started to record my section but there is a part I'm not sure how to read.

In the 10th paragraph of Section 46, there are some letters and numbers. For example, "they were paid in trifling amounts of from 5s. 5d. to 8s. 8d." Am I supposed to read it as "five ess five dee to eight ess eight dee"? I'm not really sure which coins the s and d stand for. Hm, the d could be doubloon or ducat . . .

Thanks!

Hi Anjie, thanks for asking! The currency in this book is really tough, and a whole appendix was devoted to the subject in volume 1 of this book:

http://libro.uca.edu/lea1/append3.htm
As a matter of course the kingdoms of the Crown of Aragon had their independent systems of coinage, which were based on the old divisions of the marc, almost everywhere prevalent, of libras, sueldos and dineros, or pounds, shillings and pence, there being 20 sueldos to the libra and 12 dineros to the sueldo.
Which makes sense in the context of your reading since there is also frequent reference to 'libras'. So it looks like in this case:

s is 'sueldos' and d is 'dineros'

Thanks again, and ask if you have any more questions!
