A definitive work of scholarship on the medieval conception of the Jew as devil-literally and figuratively. Through documents, analysis and illustrations, the book exposes the full spectrum of the Jew's demonisation as devil, sorcerer, blasphemer and ritual murderer; as a desecrator and heretic; as usurer and infidel. Trachtenberg reveals, in a chilling study difficult to put down, how these myths, peculiar to Christian Europe in the late Middle Ages, still exist in transmuted form in the modern era.
