Title: Jews through Christian eyes: The Jewish 'Other' in thirteenth-century papal documents, artwork, and sermons
Author: Lackner, Jacob
Abstract: This thesis examines the Jewish Other in thirteenth -century Europe and argues that it was a proto -colonial Other . It examines a period of great upheaval within the Church and argues that the anxiety resulted in a more intense Jewish Other that had to be heavily regulated and persecuted . It analyzes these constructions through papal documents , artwork , and sermons and uses them to compare and contrast various images of the Jewish Other . The result of this reconstruction is that thirteenth -century images of Jews were malleable and ambivalent , allowing authors and artists to construct multiple images of the Jew that helped deal with a multitude of Christian anxieties .
