Included in the book are a series of illustrations likening the Jews to the devil.

The Dreyfus Affair that begun in 1894 and continued through till 1906 ultimately resulted in the separation of church and state in France. The accusation that Alfred Dreyfus committed treason by selling military secrets to Germany caused a divide within the French community by pitting the Dreyfusards against the anti-Dreyfusards. It was essentially a campaign against the Jewish community in France and how they were disloyal to France and her people. It was eventually found that the evidence that Dreyfus was convicted on was false and was a ploy by the army to bolster its support for court-martialling Dreyfus. It was this point that caused much of the contention and caused his wife to continue her crusade to have her husband freed from life imprisonment on Devil’s Island.
Before Dimmesdale kills himself, he admits his sin to the whole town. Also, Dimmesdale receives treatment from Hester’s husband, Chillingworth, who knows their secret, and is trying to get revenge on them both. Chillingworth ends up realizing that he is going insane with trying to get revenge and believes that he has sinned more than both of them. The novel The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne uses satire to poke fun of the Puritan attitude toward sinning and the punishments of sinning. The reader learns from the text that the Puritan religion looked down on the idea of sin and punishes sinners harshly.
Ariel Lagares Prof. Nathan Melson December 4, 2014 History 314 The First Crusade entails the brutal, violent victimization of the Franco-German (Ashkenazic) Jews by the Western European Christians known as the Crusaders. Shmuel brings forth a vast amount of questions such as, “What were the reasons for these Christian men and women to victimize the European Jews?”, “How and why Urban’s speech played a role in the carnage?”, among others. He uses a wealth of contemporary Hebrew and Latin accounts such as the anonymous Annalista Saxo, Guilbert de Nogent, Robert the Monk and others, to further explain the questions of this stark event during the early Medieval Period for Jews and Christians. Shepkaru’s thesis can be described as Crusaders attacking the Jewish populace in their communities in places like Cologne, Worm and all throughout Rhineland as a
al., 2008, p. 791). Through hate propaganda, the messages were delivered about the hatred Americans had for the Jews. Anti-Semitic literature was spread, as well as swastikas and anti-Jewish slogans. Jews were looked down on in America as greedy scapegoats (Lachendro, 2011). From the anti-Semitism being exposed in America, it caused America to react too late to the aid of the victims of the Holocaust.
The Czars were afraid of losing power so they created laws to persecute the Jews as well. In the middle of all these years was the fact that the nobility and the peasants were on both sides of the hatred of the Jews. When Paul saw the complete rejection of Christianity by the Jews, he was livid and that anger turned to hatred (Schloss, p. 89). This is really just an egotistical person unable to deal with rejection. The first crusade is another case where a power hungry pope decided to wage war in order to unite all to obey him.
In the article, “The Death of Jesus and the Ways of God: Jesus and the Gospels on Messianic Status and Shameful Suffering by J. B. Green” states what is presented in Luke 23:1-5; Matt. 26:63; Deut. 13, “This not only implies a motivation for Jesus' condemnation by the Jewish council, but also suggests the ease with which concerns of this nature could be parlayed into terms of Jesus' threat to the Roman empire.” This is expressing the case that not only the Jewish leaders had points for condemning Christ but so did the Roman Empire. Pilate could not afford a uprising in Judea as it would look poor on him from the perspective of the Roman Empire and the Jewish leadership could not afford the people to be swayed from their power as well as in fear of the Roman occupation over them that could take away their power, traditions and beliefs but all in all their way of life.

Queen Isabela and Kind Ferdinand I of Spain began to accuse the Jews of crimes that they committed. According to the Edict, the monarchs said, “You ought to know… there were some wicked Christians who Judaized and apostatized from our holy Catholic faith.” Therefore, the Queen and the King separated the Jews away from the Christians.
Well known is Voltaire's hostility toward the Jews. His play LE FANATISME, OU MAHOMET LE PROPHÈTE (1741), which portrayed the founder of Islam as an intriguer and greedy for power, was denounced by Catholic clergymen. They had no doubts that the true target was Christian fanaticism. However, Pope Benedict XIV, whom Voltaire dedicated the work, replied by saying that he read it with great
He believed that because they did not practice the Christian religion, they were evil. He also thought that Jews were the reason for him not being excepted into an art school.
