About Pagano Ebriaci, di Pisa

30 Aug 2013 - Note from J Harlow, Curator.

I have been searching for an authoritative reference to shore up my hypothesis that Pagano Ebriaci is the same person as Abū Saʿīd Khalaf...who in turn, I hypothesize, was a Jewish son of Yosef of Fustat.

I have been searching for nearly a year and I have come up empty - the texts I seek have not shown up in Israel or Rome.

I have disconnected this Ebriaci branch, from the Nagidim of Fustat, until we can locate the necessary texts to lend even the remotest credibility to Pagano being a troubled son of Yosef of Fustat; to date, no such texts have been received. The books in question are in private collections in Rome and Israel.



Pagano "Ebriaci" (?-1090), ancestor of the Ebriaci family, of Pisa, Italy. He is said to have been a son of Yosef de Fustat (see, e.g.,, Descent of Hughes, and Maurice Boddy Pisa Families), but the connection seems uncertain. For a lead on the question, see the responses of Shawn Potter, One Possible Plantagenet Descent from Ancient Judea in soc.genealogy.medieval (Aug. 3, 2003), which suggests the name Ebriaci might derive from a Latin word meaning drunk rather than from the word Hebrew.

(This begs the question though, with a choice between Hebrew - a respected Biblical name - and Drunk, which would you choose as your family name?) Answer: many Italian surnames of the time have their origin in rude jests.

The Pagano Ebriaci da Vecchiano (or Verchionesi) references: - G.Viviani, Le pergamene dell’archivio di Stato di Pisa 1129-1145, Tesi di laurea Università di Pisa, 1964, relatore C.Violante; - Ebriaci [the Hebrew of Pisa] source: Caravale, Mario [(ed). Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani: LVII Giulini – Gonzaga. Rome, 2001; - Emilio Cristiani, "Nobiltà e Popolo nel Comune di Pisa: Dalle Origini del Podestariato alla Signoria dei Donoratico," (Naples, 1962) refers to a member of the Ebriaci family as an "Hebriacus de Hebriacis"; - Maria Luisa Ceccarelli-Lemut, Pisan Consular Families in the Communal Age: The Anfossi and the Ebriaci . in the Eleventh toThirteenth Centuries, in Thomas W. Blomquist and Maureen F. Mazzaoui(eds), "The Other Tuscany: Essays in the History of Lucca, Pisa and Siena during the Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth Centuries," (Kalamazoo: 1994) describes the Ebriaci family as judei merchants "involved in ventures in Constantinople and the orient.".
