After the banishment of the Jews from the imperial cities in the late medieval period, Fürth became the religious centre of Jewish life in southern Germany. Power-political disputes favoured the legal situation of the Jews in Fürth. In the 18th century there were several synagogues, prayer rooms, religious learning centres and a hospital. Fürth was one of the European centres of Hebrew book printing.
