The Emergence of Anti-Jewish Imagery in the Christian Art of High Medieval Spain

This book analyzes the emergence of a specialized visual language related to Jews and Judaism in Christian art of high medieval Iberia, from sporadic ethnic/religious identifiers in the late twelfth century to a consistent vocabulary of anti-Jewish signifiers by ca. 1300. Examining works of art whose significance to such study often eludes scholarly attention, it investigates their intersections with non-visual means of anti-Jewish expression, such as religious polemic and oral lore. It concludes that this hostile visual language, inspired by social and religious pressures that transformed Iberia's Christian kingdoms in the thirteenth century, prefigures the better-studied intolerance of Spain's late Middle Ages.
