The Myth of the Medieval Jewish Moneylender

This talk, given by the author of the Myth of the Medieval Jewish Moneylender (Palgrave 2017-2018 - two volumes), challenges a standard historical narrative that portrays Jews as moneylenders who served an essential economic function in Europe. In her talk, Julie Mell will explain how this narrative emerges as a response to modern anti-Semitism and why it is baseless.
