Blood Libel: An Investigation Into The Origins of a Virulent and Enduring Anti-Semitic Conspiracy Theory
Hosted By: Moment Magazine
Historian E.M. Rose discusses her award-winning book The Murder of William of Norwich: The Origins of the Blood Libel in Medieval Europe, a fascinating micro-history of a mysterious 12th century murder and the ensuing court case. Rose’s groundbreaking work provides clear answers as to why the blood libel emerged when it did and how it was able to gain such widespread acceptance, laying the foundations for enduring anti-Semitic myths that continue to the present and are deeply embedded in the White Nationalism movement.
