BAZE, ABRAHAM DE:
A prominent Jew in the principality of Orange, Burgundy, at the beginning of the sixteenth century. When the Jews were forced by a decree of Philibert of Luxemburg (issued at Courthezon April 20, 1505) to quit Orange, a period of four months was accorded, during which they could reenter the principality, without, however, being allowed to pass the night there. Abrahamde Baze and Johann Cohen were charged with the strict enforcement of this regulation.
