The Context

Europe has not always appreciated its Jewish communities. From the early years of the Common Era, Jews faced rivalry from an increasingly hostile Christian church. By the Fourth Century, the church governed the politics of many of the European countries where Jews were living and, more significantly, the attitudes of their populations.

The idea of the ‘Eternal Wandering Jew’ depicted Jews as cursed by God to wander the earth.
