How are anti-Jewish narratives born? Professor Miri Rubin will share her recent research on the emergence – not far from Cambridge, in the twelfth century – of one of the most persistent and toxic narratives told about Jews over the centuries- the child murder accusation. She uses a wide range of tools and a manuscript preserved in Cambridge to unravel the historical process involved, and explores the intertwined obsession with blood, children, and Jews.
