During the Middle Ages people identifying themselves as Danites, that is, members of the tribe of Dan, periodically appeared in the Jewish diaspora, mainly in the Mediterranean basin. An examination of the sources excavates the circumstances of these cases, suggesting a scenario that explains how these individuals came to emerge from the obscurity of their brethren. This scenario is then situated in a broader historical context. The discussion concludes by addressing the implications of these experiences for our understanding of history.
