This book brings together the Latin and Hebrew evidence regarding the official burning of the Talmud in Paris in 1240. Prior to the 13th century Christians had little awareness of Rabbinical literature like the Talmud. It was Jewish converts to Christianity like Nicholas Donin who made the accusations that the Talmud was blasphemous. The Latin sources include letters from the Popes and French bishops
In June 1239, Pope Gregory IX prompted an investigation about the Talmud (papal bull Si vera sunt) at the behest of the French convert Nicolas Donin. The charges against the Talmud included the falsehood of its purported Mosaic origin and the fact that it contained blasphemies against the Christian religion, hostile statements against Christians, illogicalities, and obscenities.
Similar events followed until the discussion of 1248 be-tween Pope Innocent IV and his legate in France, Odo of Châteauroux, when the politics of the church about the Talmud started shifting from overt persecution to rigor-ous censorship

John Friedman (Translation), Jean Connell Hoff (Translation). Robert Chazan (Introduction). By the early thirteenth century, European Jewish life was firmly rooted in the directives and doctrines of the Babylonian Talmud.
