Even more, Bale's The Jew in the Medieval Book is a pleasure to read

Even more, Bale's The Jew in the Medieval Book is a pleasure to read. Miramne Ara Krummel, Medium Aevum. Bale is fluent in the latest theoretical innovations and very much engaged with confronting the ugly role that antisemitism continues to play on the world stage. Among the many strengths of this book is the acute attention that Bale pays to every layer of textuality, from the play that words and prose are arranged on the page to the subtle interplay between stock narratives or images and the greater text into which medieval authors fit them.

Antisemitic images continued to transform and mutate in English culture well into the sixteenth century, 200 years after Jews and Judaism were expelled from English society.

These literary elements were common both to medieval literature and to early modern writing. Analysis of hagiographic commonplaces may show us how the Baroque legend came into being and was then transformed in hagiographic literature because of religious interests. They also reveal stereotypes of Jews, the roots of modern antisemitism. Introduction: Haunted by Jews: Re-Membering the Medieval English Other. Miriamne Ara Krummel.

This interdisciplinary study explores images of Jews and Judaism in late medieval English literature and culture. Using four main categories - history, miracle, cult and Passion - Anthony Bale demonstrates how varied and changing ideas of Judaism coexisted within well-known anti-semitic literary and visual models, depending on context, authorship and audience. He examines the ways in which English writers, artists and readers used and abused the Jewish image in the period following the Jews' expulsion from England in 1290

This interdisciplinary study explores images of Jews and Judaism in late medieval English literature and culture. Using four main categories - history, miracle, cult and Passion - Anthony Bale demonstrates how varied and changing ideas of Judaism coexisted within well-known anti-semitic literary and visual models, depending on context, authorship and audience. He examines the ways in which English writers, artists and readers used and abused the Jewish image in the period following the Jews' expulsion from England in 1290. The texts are analysed in their manuscript and print contexts in order to show local responses and changing meanings. This important work opens up fresh texts, sources and approaches for understanding medieval anti-semitism and shows how anti-semitic stereotypes came to be such potent images which would endure far beyond the Middle Ages.
