The Jewish community was present on the island of Sicily for more than 15 centuries, and featured an important medical legacy, such as Virdimura, a Jewish woman doctor in Catania, who in 1376 was the subject of an appreciative decree by the king of Sicily. Catania owes a debt to the Jews for a long medical tradition, which helped make the island prosperous and famous in the Mediterranean until 1492, when the Spanish King Ferdinand II ordered the expulsion of the Jews from Sicily.
