Magda Teter’s 2020 book is cited in The Passover Plot, this week’s Time-Travel Thursdays item, which explores the dark legacy and ongoing body count of an ancient anti-Semitic myth.

The Fordham University historian Magda Teter follows the spread of these deadly allegations, which exploded after the successful Trent prosecution, in her 2020 book, Blood Libel: On the Trail of an Antisemitic Myth. The work’s accompanying maps trace more than 100 such accusations, delineating them by criteria such as whether there were “legal proceedings” (73 yes, 30 no) or “Jews killed” (31 yes, 55 no, 13 unknown).
