Blaming the Jews, Then & Now

My most recent contribution to The Public Medievalist's series on "Race, Racism, and the Middle Ages." This one about the longue durée of a desecration of the host accusation in Deggendorf, Germany. It's called “Deggendorf, and the Long History of its Destructive Myth". I was born only about 70 miles away from Deggendorf, and went to university less than 50 miles away from it. Read the piece HERE.
