Abstract

During the VI century, Jews had permanently settled in the City of “Carales” - Sardinia, where the synagogue, mentioned in a letter by Pope “Gregorio Magno” (Gregory the Great), represented this community’s place of worship and congregation. Archaeological artefacts (such as epigraphy, oil lamps, rings and charms) belonging to the first centuries of the Early Middle Ages are evidence of their presence in other parts of the Island as well: Turris Libisonis, Sulci, Tharros. During the following centuries less and less proof regarding their presence is available, but this does not exclude the fact that they occasionally continued to attend commercial ports of call in Sardinia, most likely as merchants.
