The Popes Against the Jews: The Vatican's Role in the Rise of Modern Anti-Semitism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this meticulously researched, unflinching, and reasoned study, National Book Award finalist David I. Kertzer presents shocking revelations about the role played by the Vatican in the development of modern anti-Semitism. Working in long-sealed Vatican archives, Kertzer unearths startling evidence to undermine the Churchs argument that it played no direct role in the spread of modern anti-Semitism. In doing so, he challenges the Vaticans recent official statement on the subject, We Remember. Kertzer tells an unsettling story that has stirred up controversy around the world and sheds a much-needed light on the past.

Synopsis:

A groundbreaking historical study--its chief source the Vatican's secret archives--makes irrefutably clear how anti-Semitism at the highest levels of the Catholic Church nurtured the hatred that would ultimately make the Holocaust possible.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 299-344) and index.
