Decretal by Alexander VI to Bishop of Catanzaro [Present-day Italy]: “The suppression of the Jewish synagogue of Catanzaro (must be completed), with the erection of a church in your parish…” [Researcher’s note: This mandate refers to the conversion of a Jewish synagogue in Catanzaro into a Christian church and its incorporation into the parish of the city’s bishop, Stephen Goffredi.]
