Ibn Verga, Solomon

(fl. 15th-16th cent.)
   Spanish historiographer. After the conquest of Malaga in 1487, he was sent by Spanish Jewish commu-nities to raise funds for ransoming Jews captured there. When the Jews were expelled from Spain in 1492, he settled in Lisbon. From 1497 he was compelled to live as a Converso, but he later emigrated to Italy. His Shevet Yehudah is a narrative describing the persecution of the Jews from the destruction of the Second Temple until his own time. It was published with additions by his son Joseph ibn Verga.
