This course will survey the multifaceted connection between Popes and Jews in medieval Europe, continue to the Counter Reformation period, and through to the Holocaust and modern times. We will examine anti-Judaic violence, blood libel and host desecration accusations, Inquisitorial prosecutions, modern antisemitism and genocide. In our final sessions, we will question the extent of Papal efforts to convert Jews, the “silence” of the Papacy during the Holocaust, and how the Papacy relates to the modern state of Israel today.
