Note 084
From Chapter 28 of the Decline & Fall

At Minorca, the relics of St. Stephen converted in eight days 540 Jews; with the help, indeed, of some unwholesome severities, such as burning the synagogue, driving the obstinate infidels to starve among the rocks, etc. See the original letter of Severus bishop of Minorca (ad calcem St. Augustin. de Civ. Dei), and the judicious remarks of Basnage (tom. viii. p. 245-251).
