Professor Miri Rubin in Association with the Holocaust Studies Center and the Department of History with Public Participation


On Tuesday 7th November, Miri Rubin will lecture on The Child Murder Accusation against the Jews of Norwich. 

This talk relates to Miri’s work as the editor and translator of Thomas of Monmouth’s The Life and Passion of William of Norwich (2014). This mid twelfth-century text is generally regarded as the earliest accusation that Jews annually murdered a Christian child, the seed of what eventually became known as the “blood libel.” Prof. Rubin will bring her unmatched erudition to an analysis of the meaning, memory and legacy of this “chilling, highly significant” text.
