Editorial Reviews


"This book is path-breaking in the construct of its subject, brilliant in its theoretical framework, and original in its insight and use of diverse avenues of historical inquiry--music history, the history of anti-Semitism, the history of Jewish thought, and the interrelationship between politics and culture."--Leon Botstein, President of Bard College--Leon Botstein, President of Bard College

Book Description

This deeply imaginative and wide-ranging book shows how, since the first centuries of the Christian era, gentiles have associated Jews with noise. Ruth HaCohen focuses her study on a “musical libel"—a variation on the Passion story that recurs in various forms and cultures in which an innocent Christian boy is killed by a Jew in order to silence his “harmonious musicality.”
