Detail Description:

Rules for the disposition of housing units in the Jewish Ghetto of Ferrara as a result of a smaller population. The rules require for the community to pay the rent of the empty houses until such time a as they are de-acquisitioned from the community to the general housing stock of the gentiles. The decrease was the result of conversions to Christianity by members of the community seeking economic status and financial gains.
