    Many medieval Christians believed that Jews committed violent crimes in an attempt to destroy the Christian religion and way of life; the pervasive fear of such attacks led to anti-Jewish expulsions, riots and murders. Ranging across poetry, drama, visual culture, theology and philosophy, Feeling Persecuted shows that the violence perpetrated against Jews was a complex part of medieval life and culture, in which images of Christian suffering were central to ideas of love, community and home.
